The Budapest Symphony Orchestra M.V (M.V 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, Columbia, 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 MÁV Symphony Orchestra was the only Hungarian orchestra to participate in Tokyoʼs legendary Three Tenors Production in 1999. The orchestraʼs recordings are available everywhere in the world, issued by the biggest labels. Since 2012, Peter Csaba has been the orchestraʼs artistic director and chief conductor; since 2014, Kobayashi Ken-Ichiro has been their honorary guest conductor.
