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.

Mrs. Péter Erdődy, born Mária Anna Niczky – this Hungarian aristocratic lady was a countess both in her own right and as the wife of a count, but she can thank her reputation not to this fact but entirely to her confidential relationship she enjoyed with Beethoven. This lady was patron, indeed ‘confessor’ to the composer; she was even suspected by one or two music historians of being that certain “immortal beloved”. This supposition is in all likelihood mistaken although it is certain that the two cello-piano sonatas composed in 1815 were dedicated to her, which form the half of the chamber recital of Ditta Rohmann and Zoltán Fejérvári. There are two works by Schubert, who no doubt sensed Beethoven’s titanic proximity but still he successfully overcame this overpowering influence: an early violin sonata by the 19-year-old (transcribed by Ditta Rohmann) and the sonata in A minor dating from eight years later. The sobriquet preserves the memory of a special instrument, the arpeggione, a kind of guitar played with a type of bow. During the evening, we can also listen two instrumental specialties: Ditta Rohmann plays Schubert’s works on a five-string cello, and Zoltán Fejérvári plays the entire programme of the concert on an 18th-century fortepiano copy owned by the Budavár Municipality.
