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.

“– Fly not, cowards and vile beings, for a single knight attacks you! (…) So saying, and commending himself with all his heart to his lady Dulcinea, imploring her to support him in such a peril, with lance in rest and covered by his buckler, he charged at Rocinante's fullest gallop and fell upon the first mill that stood in front of him.” Where did this quote come from and what is the connection with the concert programme? Unlike in previous seasons, in their 2018/19 anniversary season the orchestra leave it up to the audience to work out how the concerts are linked.
