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.

Verdi: Rigoletto – Act 4

One of the wonders of opera is that actors are capable of expressing their individual emotions at the same time in a duet, a tercet or quintet. Another marvel, like all dramatic genres, is opera’s ability to stop and speed up the flow of time. This very thing happens in the fourth act of Verdi’s Rigoletto, where the composer portrays the entangled relationships between the five individuals through the heart-stopping confrontation of the musical characters typical of the players.
