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.

What is music good for? The proper question should rather be, what is it not good for… We sing when happy, serenade when in love, listen to moving music when in sorrow, or join a concert when in need of replenishment. And then there’s dance! There is no dance without music, and the history of music would be poorer without dance. The autumn 2019 programme of Liszt Kidz Academy, the Liszt Academy series for young people, examines the connection between music and dance. Matinees complete with musicians and dancers reveal how dance music was transformed into classical music. In the second in the season ticket series, the focus is on the Viennese waltz. Did the famous um-pah-pah beat really come from Vienna, is it possible to dance to every waltz, and why exactly is Strauss king of the waltz? The salon experience is care of Jan Vojtek, pianist.
