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.

Widespread international connections play and important part in the everyday life of the Franz Liszt Music Academy. Meetings of young musical talents and their teachers enforce the exchange of ideas about interpretation and education skills, contributing thus to a diverse, complex knowledge of music. The project named „16+1” covers one of these cooperations, which is truly unique and involves the academies of the following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and China.

The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music has a long tradition of fruitful cooperation with conservatories in China. Among these, a prominent role is played by the Zhejiang Conservatory, the Shanghai Academy of Music and the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music as well. Within the „16+1” project we now have the honor and pleasure to host a concert which will be given by the piano professors of the Zhejiang Conservatory together with pianist István Gulyás representing the Piano Department and pianist Péter Kiss representing the Chamber Music Department of the Liszt Academy.
