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.

Dávid Dinya is an astonishingly multifaceted musician who, despite the fact that he is only at the beginning of his career, has already contributed enormously to Hungarian music, primarily in the area of education. His incredible activity and creativity are on full display in the programme put together for the closing concert of his DLA studies. In the first half, he commissioned young contemporary composers with writing parallel works to gems of Brahms’s wonderful late choral song-poetry, the movements of the opus 104 series, indeed he himself penned one of the compositions. After the intermission we hear two oratorios, settings to music created nearly 200 years apart for the psalm beginning ‘As the hart panteth after the water brooks’: Mendelssohn’s beautiful creation, often called the finest church music composition by this master of Romanticism, follows one of the latest works by Hungarian Máté Balogh.
