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.

Exchange Studies & Mobility

The Liszt Academy offers three types of exchange and mobility opportunities.

Erasmus+ offers mobility opportunities for students and university staff, helping them develop and share knowledge and experience at institutions and organisations in different countries.

The Academy offers exchange opportunities through bilateral agreements with certain universities in China, South Korea, Japan, Russia, India, the USA and Kazakhstan. Scholarships may be available within the framework of the Stipendium Hungaricum state scholarship system.

The Joseph Weingarten Memorial Trust managed by the Birmingham Conservatoire supports postgraduate study in piano, violin or voice at Birmingham Conservatoire and the Liszt Academy.
