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.

First a motif, then it is fulfilled, enriched with new inspirations and finally comes a work, which goes on to become a classic in music literature. Our concert presents nothing less than the multi-layered motivation taken from folk and Gypsy music, which can result in the birth of another musical variation, possibly even before our eyes, on stage.
