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 trio formed by Boglárka Pecze, Eva Boesch and Sun-Young Nam, which specializes in modern and contemporary music, take their name, oddly enough, from the work Catch written in 1991 by Thomas Adès for a quartet of violin, cello, piano and clarinet. In this early work, Adès puts the instruments through an unusual ‘choreography’: a traditional trio plays on stage, with the clarinettist standing apart in the literal and figurative sense, joining in the musical flows with a sort of stand-offish attitude. The main thread of the Trio Catch concert in the Solti Hall is similar: the programme, which presents early 20th-century music, starts and ends with trios, while the works in between evoke a sense of missing something or someone, of absence or estrangement.




The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
