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.

Would you like to know what thoughts pop up in a musician’s head after a concert? Are you curious about the criteria based on which he set up the concert programme? Are you interested in the personal experiences of the performers that tie them to the Liszt Academy? Even after having read the programme brochure, further questions arise in your mind that can be answered only by the artists themselves? With the help of the “Kóda” series of the Liszt Academy Concert Centre (editor: Endre Tóth), the above riddles can be solved. During the informal half-an-hour discussions starting 10 minutes after the concerts, the performers and composers talk about the staged pieces, themselves and about their relationship with the Liszt Academy.
