Amadinda Percussion Group’s more than three-and-a-half-decade career is a particularly rich and internationally contextualized chapter in the history of modern instrumental performance art. In the case of similar leading formations, we usually mention the number of new works premiered, the long list of composers enjoying close working relationships with the given ensemble, and those works that have gained play-time and popularity comparable to classical works in the period since their debut. However, there is another aspect that is rarely mentioned yet one of perhaps even greater importance, and that is, that these groups have raised generations, shaped their tastes and become important workshops in the training process. Amadinda have been just such a workshop for very many years. In recent decades, students connected to the ensemble in a variety of ways have become important representatives of the Hungarian percussion performing arts, transplanting the spirit of Amadinda into the most influential orchestras and contemporary ensemble formations. The Amadinda Percussion Project builds on knowledge and experience accumulated over the decades, within the framework of which younger musician generations are involved in the programme under the direction and participation of the band members. One outcome of this collaboration is forward-looking chamber music concert programmes.
