If all the Hungarian violinists who were worthy of careers actually had them how many other violinists would have careers?
My wife is a member of the Houston Symphony Chorus. They toured in Europe last summer and one of the concerts was at the Ferenc Liszt Academy with the Budapest Concert Orchestra. .
