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 wind section comprises a significant group of instruments. Their sound is produced by the vibration of a column of air enclosed in a tube. The sound waves generated by the vibration of the air column in the instrument are transmitted to the air particles, the changing density of which carries the sound, the characteristics of which are, in turn, determined by the size and form of the instrument’s pipe. It is perhaps obvious to most that the oboe is a wind instrument, but fewer may associate the organ with the wind section. The fact is, however, that in essence the ‘queen of instruments’ is nothing more than a wind instrument composed of flue and reed pipes fitted with a wind box. The pipes are operated partly through keyboards and partly through pedals. The oboe and the organ team up with string ensemble Concerto Armonico in this refreshing spring concert of works by Albinoni and Händel.
