I am not exaggerating when I say that, whatever I achieved as a musician, I owe more to Leó Weiner than to anyone else. ... To me, he remains an outstanding example of what a musician should be.

István Lajkó (piano)

István Lajkó is one of those dedicated and responsible artists who do not seek easy success. The musician, who teaches at both the Liszt Academy and Cologne Music Academy, has a special interest in the triple number, which has special meaning not only in mythology, religion, and fairy tales but also in music. Many composers have composed cycles of three pieces. The third of Liszt's three Petrarca sonnets is the most magical, while the third of Schubert's Three Piano Pieces is the most joyful and the earliest one. Medtner's Sonata Ballade was originally in one movement, but the composer later expanded it to three, and the fugue in the third movement is completed after two attempts, on the third try.
