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.

The Liszt Academy’s restored organ, made in 1907 and the same age as the Art Nouveau building it is housed in, can once again be seen and heard in all its former glory from autumn 2018. A decision on the reconstruction of the original organ was taken by the academy in 2010, with the inauguration taking place on 22 October 2018, the anniversary of the birth of Ferenc Liszt.
