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.

It is often said that music is like a language, a language in which the instruments speak. But what does music say, and how is it capable of relating a story if it is not supported by text? The spring 2019 concerts of the Liszt Academy’s youth series, Liszt Kidz Academy, which is targeted at 10–15-year-olds (as well as their parents and grandparents), seek answers to these questions. The second performance in the season ticket series explores the hidden messages in classical chamber music and examines how we can decipher them. Chamber works by Mozart, a champion of the cryptic message, are performed by Korossy String Quartet, made up of Liszt Academy students and student of the piano Gergely Kovács. Narrator Dániel Mona, music historian, will assist the children in ‘breaking’ the codes.
