...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.

Chamber orchestra formed by the 1st class students of the Liszt Academy
Conductor: Péter Kováts

The orchestral musician course, one of the branches of the Academy of Music’s traditionally high-standard instrumental teaching, received a new boost in that first-year students of the university can now for the first time pursue chamber orchestra studies for one year. The skills of combined orchestral playing are mastered in the first semester by presenting string orchestra works from different periods and concert rehearsals, accompanied by music theory analyses and music history lectures given by teachers of the Music Theory Department. This complex teaching-learning process concludes with the chamber orchestra recital at which students demonstrate their knowledge on stage, in front of a live audience. The repertoire representing several styles from music history is a demanding professional challenge for musicians, while at the same time being a satisfying experience for the audience. Violinist Péter Kováts, holder of the Bartók-Pásztory Prize with several decades of conducting and concert experience, oversees the work of the chamber orchestra. He is artistic director of Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra and teacher at the Liszt Academy.
