...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

We tend to think of Edvard Grieg in terms of his orchestral works, songs and piano miniatures, whereas his chamber music oeuvre was narrow: a complete string quartet, three violin-piano sonatas and a cello sonata. Aside from these, he bequeathed to posterity merely a few salon works and two fragments, an unfinished string quartet and a solitary trio movement. Notwithstanding this, these few works are fine examples of his endeavour to weave Norwegian folk music characteristics into conventional compositional forms and styles. Three enormously gifted and ambitious young artists are tasked with performing these works that rarely feature on concert hall programmes. Júlia Pusker and Marcell Szabó attended the preparatory class of the Liszt Academy, then Pusker continued her studies at the Royal Academy of Music. Gergely Devich – who is currently a master's student of István Varga at the Liszt Academy – despite his young age, has won several competitions. In 2014, he represented Hungary at the Eurovision Young Musicians, and the same year he received the Junior Prima Prize.
