Over the years, the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and the Hungarian–Japanese Friendship Society have created a tradition with a joint event for which students of the Liszt Academy always prepare a special programme: alongside Western European composers, there is room for popular or rarely heard pieces by Hungarian composers and, year on year, audiences also get a diverse ‘taster’ of Japanese music art. The programme’s artistic director is Csaba Onczay, Liszt, Bartók–Pásztory and Kossuth Prize cellist, professor emeritus of the Strings Department.
