Violinist Márta Ábrahám, a teacher of the Academy of Music, invited her fellow musicians, students and friends to play music together in the Otto Till Hall. The first piece of program which evokes the atmosphere of salons was written by Robert Schumann in 1842, the year he dedicated to chamber music. This work is considered one of the finest of Schumann's chamber music.
Franz Schubert wrote one of his favorite compositions, The Trout, in 1817. Two years later, he was happy to meet a Steyr music lover's request to compose a string quintet based on this song. At the first performance in the music lover's salon, it is recalled that an amateur played the cello part whose play left something to be desired. Fortunately, we will enjoy Schubert's beautiful work in its perfect beauty, thanks to the great musicians.
