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.

From Franz Schubert through Sergei Rachmaninov all the way to Richard Strauss. This is the programme compilation of the two-part mini series keyboard students of the Doctoral School of the Liszt Academy offer to the public. The concerts that have come about under the expert guidance of programme director Péter Nagy feature a handpicked selection of the vast song and song arrangement repertoire. The first evening comprises lieder in the German language and arrangements of German songs plus piano pieces by Liszt (who was brilliant in this area as well) and modern, contemporary keyboard paraphrases.
