The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Some concerts feature musicians so excellent that the listener doesn’t care what they play. And then there are concerts where the favourites are so great that you don’t even notice who the performers are. Finally, there is the evening when two-time Kossuth Prize winner Dezső Ránki plays with the Keller Quartet, founded in 1987, and they put three masterpieces on their programme. The programme opens with the five-movement “The Trout”, which, with its violin-viola-cello-double bass-piano apparatus, introduced audiences to a previously unknown formation, and in its variation movement also covers an earlier popular song by Schubert. Shostakovich also quotes from himself in his most famous string quartet – only from many more of his works. And finally, a Russian string quartet, Tchaikovsky’s first attempt at the genre and his greatest success, closes the concert.
