Featuring: teachers and students of the Brass Sub-Department of the Liszt Academy

Without Ödön Mihalovich, the Liszt Academy could never have become the institution as we know it today. When in 1887 he took over the leadership of the academy from Ferenc Erkel, classes were taught only in the following subjects: piano, organ, singing, violin, cello and composition. Mihalovich expanded the horizons of the school considerably. He established teacher training, increased the number of students that could be enrolled, contracted teachers such as Ernő Dohnányi and Béla Bartók, arranged so that teachers of the institution were recognized as state employees, and introduced numerous new courses – besides organizing flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon departments, he also launched teaching of the horn, trumpet and trombone. As a consequence, it can be stated that without the appointment of Mihalovich and his activity continuing until 1919, this concert introducing the brass workshop of the Liszt Academy certainly could never have been realized.
