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.

Symphony in D major by Brahms is genuinely pleasing music: in it pulsates everything that his great predecessors – from Bach to Beethoven – condensed in this key: nature, magnificence, the joy of living and the marvel of creation. The other two works take this joyous theme still further, although with slightly different intonations. One of Ravel’s finest works is his Piano Concerto in G major. Over the past few years, the grand symphonic poems of Richard Strauss have regularly featured on programmes of the ensemble, and on this occasion the audience gets to hear one of his most carefree operas, Der Rosenkavalier, a piece that distils all the turn-of-the-century charm into notes (or at least as much as can be presented without singers).
