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.

The Budapest Strings Chamber Orchestra (concertmaster: János Pilz, artistic director: Károly Botvay)

This concert by Zoltán Fejérvári and Budapest Strings features pieces by two composers, Bach and Shostakovich, which allow artists to give full expression to tone, character and emotion. The audience can revel in light-heartedly joyful and lyrical moments, as well as musical expositions of grotesque or indeed tragically disenchanting situations. Zoltán Fejérvári performs two concertos, while the orchestra have the opportunity to reveal their dedication to chamber music in a work that the author, Shostakovich, originally intended for a string quartet.
