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.

Conductor: Jordi Savall

Jordi Savall is a living legend, the uncrowned king of early music. His concert staged jointly with the Baroque ensemble of the Budapest Festival Orchestra is in praise of tempests, thunder and water and comes with all the energy and astonishing tools we have come to expect of him. Working with English, French, Italian and German examples and through the medium of operatic, dance or purely instrumental music, we can learn how many different solutions were reached for these topics in the Baroque.
