Famous festivals and institutions are numbered among the members of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA), which has been operating for more than 15 years. The Liszt Academy, which has given the genre world-famous performing ensembles and which cultivates chamber music as an important area even today, also joins the masterclass of the organization aimed at nurturing chamber music traditions and introducing new formations. We have the chance to listen to a pair of classics of the chamber repertoire, in a youthfully fresh interpretation formed following intense workshop efforts by a French and a Hungarian quartet. Quatuor Métamorphoses were set up in 2016 from students of the Paris Conservatoire; in their composition they embody the essence of string quartet playing since, through the harmonization of the individual characters of the members, each with a different musical background, they achieve an artistically unified, and precisely because of this all the more exciting, common denominator. ▪ The Korossy String Quartet, made up of students of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, are an even younger formation, which drew attention to themselves in 2019 when they displayed astonishing skills by becoming category winners at the Weiner Leó National Chamber Music Competition.
