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.

Featuring students of the Bartók Conservatoire

Each year students of the Liszt Academy preparatory school, the Bartók Conservatory, achieve incredible results in music competitions organized for teenage classes both in Hungary and throughout Europe. Over the course of the academic year, the school noticeboard gradually fills with certificates and awards issued in Budapest, Debrecen, Szeged, or perhaps Germany and Italy, signalling that once again Konzi students have reached great heights. And there is always one evening in the institution’s Liszt Academy concert series when an audience can enjoy the performances of competition winners – piano, strings, wind and vocals – in the Solti Hall.
