Budapest Festival Orchestra

Budapest Festival Orchestra Review

World-renowned conductor Iván Fischer, who is still music director, formed the group with famed Hungarian conductor Zoltán Kocsis in 1983. The orchestra has won international accolades and is hands-down your best bet for classical music in Budapest. International soloists and conductors are often invited to perform with the orchestra. Its home base was previously Liszt Ferenc Music Academy, but since 2005 the orchestra has also performed regularly at the new Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in the Palace of the Arts. Tickets can be purchased online or at several locations around Budapest, including Ticket Express and the Liszt Ferenc Academy.
