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.

The brilliant Hungarian Roma guitarist Ferenc Snétberger and four of his superb colleagues released their intense and emotionally rich album Joyosa in 2004. Fifteen years later, three of the four musicians – Snétberger, trumpet and flugelhorn player Markus Stockhausen (son of the composer Karlheinz) and bassist Arild Andersen are once more back on stage at the Liszt Academy Grand Hall. The joint concert by Snétberger and friends offers an audience the sort of musical experience that is rare in Hungary: the four European jazz masters and refined musicians combine their powers in order to captivate and delight music aficionados. Solo concerts given by the different musicians provide much spiritual-intellectual food for thought thus this, a combined concert, simply must not be missed by any feeling and thoughtful person.
