BUDAPEST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MAV

The Budapest Symphony Orchestra MÁV (MÁV Szimfonikus Zenekar) was founded in 1945 by the Hungarian State Railways. Since then, it has developed a wide-ranging repertoire from music of the Baroque era to works by contemporary composers, and is currently ranked among the best professional ensembles in Hungary. The orchestra has performed throughout Europe as well as in Cyprus, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Oman. Performances have taken place at many of the most important and respected concert halls, such as the Musikvereinssaal in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and the Shanghai Oriental Art Centre. The Budapest Symphony Orchestra MÁV was the only Hungarian orchestra to participate in Tokyo’s legendary Three Tenors Production in 1999. In 2012 Péter Csaba became the orchestra’s artistic director and chief conductor; Kobayashi Ken-Ichiro has held the post of honorary guest conductor since 2014.
