Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra

Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra Review

The oldest Hungarian orchestra, the Budapest Philharmonic was founded in 1853 by Hungarian composer Ferenc Erkel. Its long and rich musical history and traditions have been formed by outstanding musicians including János Richter, Gustav Mahler, Johannes Brahms, Ernst von Dohnányi, and János Ferencsik. The Budapest Philharmonic is also famous for its first performances of works—some of them written originally for the orchestra—by Liszt, Brahms, Goldmark, Mahler, Bartók, Kodály, and Dohnányi. Tickets can be purchased at the Hungarian State Opera House.
