CAPELLA SAVARIA

In 2006 the Capella Savaria Baroque Orchestra celebrated its 25th anniversary and was praised and fêted on Hungarian Radio and Television. Situated in the western Hungarian city Szombathely, it takes its name from the town’s ancient Roman name, Savaria. The core ensemble is the famed string section that plays on original instruments from the eighteenth-century. On five occasions the orchestra was awarded Record of the Year status in Hungary. Concert tours outside Hungary have taken them to Italy, Germany, Israel, South America, the United States and Canada; they have also participated in several major festivals in Europe, at Innsbruck, Bruges, Regensburg, Göttingen, Halle and Köthen. In 1991 the orchestra was awarded the Liszt prize in recognition of its outstanding achievements and in 2006 was voted the “Prima, primissima” title, an award in arts given by the National Commerce and Trade Association to professional groups. Zsolt Kalló, the artistic director of the ensemble is also the Capella’s leader and concert master. A graduate of the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, he continued his studies at the Mozarteum in Salzburg under Sándor Végh. He is an acclaimed soloist, has appeared in many countries and has a broad repertory that extends from the Baroque to the contemporary.
