BUDAPEST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MÁV

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 the 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 worldwide, appearing at prestigious venues such as the Musikvereinssaal in Vienna, the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, the Berlin Philharmonie, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and the Shanghai Oriental Art Centre. The ensemble was the only Hungarian orchestra to participate in Tokyoʼs legendary Three Tenors Production in 1999.

Throughout its history, the orchestra has established close connections with eminent artists such as János Ferencsik, Kurt Masur, Herbert Blomstedt and Yuri Simonov among many others. Renowned soloists such as Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, Kiri Te Kanawa, Jenő Jandó and Kristóf Baráti have performed with the orchestra. The orchestra’s discography has been released on various labels. Since 2019, Daniel Boico has been the orchestra’s artistic director and chief conductor, and since 2014, Kobayashi Ken-Ichiro has been their honorary guest conductor.
