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.

Past & Future 3 November 2022, Liszt Academy - 10 November 2022 Indianapolis (IN) USA. One week before they bid farewell to the international percussion community in Indianapolis as one of the highlights at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, the world's largest professional event, Amadinda and the Amadinda Percussion Project will perform at the Liszt Academy with the same programme. The members of the group take the stage with some of the most talented young Hungarian percussionists in Budapest and in the USA. The Amadinda Percussion Group’s career of more than three and a half decades is a particularly rich and internationally influential chapter in the history of modern instrumental performance. In the case of such groundbreaking ensembles, the number of premieres, the long list of composers closely associated with the ensemble, and the new works that have achieved a level of popularity comparable to classical works since their premiere are mostly remembered. What is less often mentioned, however, is perhaps more important than anything else, the fact that these groups sometimes become workshops that raise and define the taste and skills of generations. Amadinda has been such a workshop for decades. Over the past years, students who have been associated with the ensemble in a variety of ways have become leading exponents of the domestic percussion performing arts, carrying on the Amadinda spirit in the most important large orchestras and contemporary ensemble formations. Responsible to pass on the knowledge and experience they have accumulated over the decades, Amadinda launched the Amadinda Percussion Project, a programme which involves younger generations of musicians in their work, under the direction and with the participation of the members, to create exciting chamber music concerts.
