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.

Johann Sebastian Bach, the great master of Baroque music, was made cantor of Thomasschule zu Leipzig in February 1723. Since his appointment fell in Lent, he debuted with Passion music for Good Friday services. These works are unparalleled creations in music history. This concert features the St John Passion.
