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.

Grand Hall


Söndörgő: Áron Eredics (prime tambura, tambura samica, darbuka, vocals), Benjámin Eredics (viola tambura, trumpet, vocals), Dávid Eredics (clarinet, saxophone, kaval, prime tambura, bass prime tambura, vocals), Salamon Eredics (accordion, recorder, hulusi, bass prime tambura), Attila Buzás (tambura bass, cello tambura, tapan, vocals)

The Eredics brothers pulled together members of the wider family and their best musician friends to found the now internationally renowned tambura band Söndörgő in the mid-1990s. With appropriate respect, refined senses and good taste, they dip into the well of south Slav music tradition, drawing from Béla Bartók, Tihamér Vujicsics and their own collections. Far from dampening their ambitions, this strong sense of respect for traditions has actually had a catalyzing effect on the tireless work with which – for several decades now – they have represented this culture and which provides a constantly renewing, contemporary dynamism to the musical treasures of the Slavs living along the Danube. Material from their eighth album is being showcased in the course of a world tour, the first concert of which is in the Liszt Academy. During the recital, Béla Bartók is once again evoked, tribute is paid to the work of the early Vujicsics ensemble, and the mysterious ‘Constantinople’ collection of Béla Vikár is unveiled.
