The years that followed World War influenced the financial situation of Szigeti. He had to pursue his career from then on three distinct, superimposed levels simultaneously: 1- teaching position in the Conservatory, the material foundation on which he could base the economy of his household and also the resumption of his European career, so abruptly cut short by the War; 2- his concertizing activities in Switzerland, with its disproportionately numerous music-loving, music-consuming small towns. They produced the money to finance the resumption of his concertizing across the borders, away from the safe haven that was Switzerland. The 3rd level is described below.
