I am not exaggerating when I say that, whatever I achieved as a musician, I owe more to Leó Weiner than to anyone else. ... To me, he remains an outstanding example of what a musician should be.

Lajos Bárdos was born 120 years ago, on 1 October 1899. His life and oeuvre had a major impact on 20th century Hungarian music. He was a distinguished professor of the Liszt Academy, composer, musicologist and enthusiastic apostle of Hungarian folk music. He passed away on 18 November 1986, bequeathing music a rich oeuvre. The Bárdos Society was formed in 1987 in order to cherish his memory, and this assembly organizes regular concerts in his name. The most popular choral works by Lajos Bárdos are performed at this celebratory concert on the 120th anniversary of his birth.
