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.

In order to be awarded a doctor of liberal arts degree, the candidate has to show independent research work carried out in his/her specialist field and the results of related creative work. In the case of music, this means not only the penning of a meritorious doctoral dissertation but compiling a high quality concert, too. In the first half of Kata Borsos’s doctoral finals concert, in the wake of Bach’s highly challenging Chaconne there are two instrumental pieces in which the respective composers testify without words about their connection to the transcendental spheres. The second half of her concert is bookended by works reflecting on the Baroque period by a major Hungarian composer of the 20th century as well as one of the central figures of Western music history. Sandwiched between these two is an 18th century chamber piece that served as the inspiration for the closing number, Stravinsky’s suite.
