The Liszt Academy functions as both a university and concert centre, and these two profiles mutually reinforce each other, with students being able to take part in study projects that also end up being enjoyed by the general public. The institution instructs not only soloists but also orchestral musicians, so some prominence is given to symphony and chamber orchestra projects. First-year students pursue a one-year string orchestra course: tonight’s performance is their concert. Professors of both the Chamber Music Department and Music Theory Department took part in the training, arming these youthful musicians with practical and theoretical knowledge.
