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.

The Liszt Academy Alma Mater Choir, just like any music ensemble made up of students of an educational institution, are virtuosi of permanent renewal. At the same time, they retain the classical values through their excellent and carefully crafted performances. The inseparable nature of these two characteristics cannot be shown more clearly than in case of the topic they chose for this May concert. The concert programme parades the musical pictures of the power of eternal attraction experienced in a thousand different ways, adoration, destruction and renewal, that is, love, from the passionate madrigals of Gesualdo and Marenzio, through the works of Elgar, Csemiczky and Cornelius, to the nostalgically beautiful love song-waltz series of Brahms.
