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.

In 2018-19, young Taiwanese musician Su-Han Yang took part in the conductor mentoring programme run by the Péter Eötvös Contemporary Music Foundation. He graduated from the Hanns Eisler College, Berlin, and currently lives in the German capital. In 2015, he studied at the Riccardo Muti Opera Academy, and in 2017 he won the 10th International Grzegorz Fitelberg Competition for Conductors. The programme of his Budapest concert is a true test of conductor aptitude and virtuosity because he is also conducting a flute concerto the composer of which, a 27-year-old Argentinian, he met at last year’s Eötvös Foundation programme. Alex Nante was born in Buenos Aires and is considered one of the most influential figures of his generation. He has lived in Paris since 2014 and completed his musicology studies here. His works have won several prizes including the French Les Inouïes Gold Medal for Four Pieces for Flute and Piano (2015). Among his orchestral works, Fulgor (South Korea, 2010), Tres Sueños Lúcidosa (Argentina, 2013) and Île de Créations (France, 2015) each picked up first prizes.
