Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music has also joined ECMA PRO, the international program of the European Chamber Academy of Music (ECMA). ECMA has been operating successfully for more than a decade and a half. As a defining workshop of 20th century chamber music traditions, the Chamber Music Academy aims to present young formations, boost their professional careers through masterclasses, workshops, festival performances and showcase-type concerts. The ECMA PRO Budapest round of 2021 will be organized by the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music between 4-6 November.

The Echéa Quartet was formed in 2017 at the Royal Academy of Music in London. As the laurate of numerous British and international competitions the string quartet is the member of several professional organizations and networks and have been also selected to participate in the McGill International String Quartet Academy (MISQA) in Montréal where they will study with members of the Alban Berg, Artemis and Ébène Quartets. Since its foundation the ensemble has already been invited to perform at international stages, festivals and radio programmes. The Echéa Quartet members play on a quartet of W.E. Hill & Sons instruments and bows, courtesy of the Harrison-Frank and City Music Foundations.
