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.

Zoltán Fejérvári (piano)

Zoltán Fejérvári regularly performs in concert halls in Hungary and around the world. Besides the Liszt Academy Grand Hall, he has featured at other major venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall. On the domestic concert scene, he has played with the likes of the Festival Orchestra and Hungarian National Philharmonic as soloist. His 2011 recording of Liszt’s Piano Concerto in E minor won the Liszt Society album grand prix, and in 2017 he won the prestigious Montreal International Piano Competition. In the first half of this Black and White Colours season ticket recital we hear two Romantic pieces comprising short movements with natural themes. This is followed by a contemporary work from Péter Tornyai.

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
