...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

The bourse or exchange is a wonderful and exciting place where everyone finds what they are looking for. Where swaps are constantly occurring, where sooner or later there will be a solution for everything. The bourse is colourful, diverse and busy. Just like the Musician Bourse, in other words, the spring semester of Liszt Kidz Academy. During brand-new performances of the Liszt Academy’s series for young people, musicologist Dániel Mona demonstrates how many different types of musician there are and who does what in the music world; whom, where and in what medium do we find them. Chamber music is first up. Only a few musicians take part in playing chamber music – they are neither soloists nor orchestra members. So what do they do? Where do they come from? Where did they perform earlier? During the matinee there are evocations of the aristocratic courts and celebrations of the nobility of the 18th century, plus 19th century so-called Romantic salon culture, the atmosphere and music of intimate music-making at home. And all we need to generate this are five talented musicians highly attentive towards each other.
