The most important class, however, for me and for hundreds of other Hungarian musicians, was the chamber-music class. From about the age of fourteen, and until graduation from the Academy, all instrumentalists except the heavy-brass players and percussionists had to participate in this course. Presiding over it for many years was the composer Leó Weiner, who thus exercised an enormous influence on three generations of Hungarian musicians.

To a certain extent, this year’s Bartók competition repertoire preserves the tradition of the Liszt–Bartók competition: six competitors who have displayed their expertise in earlier rounds largely with performances of works by Bartók and Liszt make it into the solo final, and now they have to win over the jury with freely selected 19th century works and one piece by Ravel, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Prokofiev or Stravinsky.
