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.

 The Main Building of the Liszt Academy completed in 1907 – for more information, please click here – is not only the concert centre of the university but also that of education.

The edifice of the Liszt Academy is open to the public only in an organised form. In order that the course of instruction be undisturbed, the building is closed until the hour prior to the evening performance. For further information on the guided tours in the Main Building of the Liszt Academy, please click on the Guided Tours in the main menu.   

University life continues as usual even after the relocation of the various department into the Main Building at Liszt Ferenc Square.
