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.

This fine concert is made all the more special for its diverse, multi-ethnic ‘guest artist team’. Haydn’s Cello Concerto in D major includes a solo by Iris-Meongwon Cho. The cellist lives in Austria and is a member of the famous Tonkünstler Orchestra; in addition to orchestral appearances, she enjoys being a soloist in chamber music productions. Soloist for the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, dating from 1844, is Maria Solozobova, who was born in Moscow and completed her studies in Zürich and Basel. She now lives in Switzerland and is first concertmaster of Suisse Romande. Czech conductor Leoš Svárovský is artistic director of the Prague State Opera. The evening closes with Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E minor.
