Chief Conductor of the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Choir


On 23rd March I was nominated Chief Conductor of the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Choir and will up the post for the 2022/23 season.

This partnership is the result of a special relationship that I have with the orchestra, with whom I share a profound understanding of music. The announcement will be celebrated appropriately on 24 March at 7.30 p.m. in a concert at the Müpa in Budapest, where I’m about to conduct Mahler’s Second Symphony.

I greatly admire these musicians and the incredible cultural heritage of this country, and being in Budapest always fills me with joy. It is therefore a great honour for me to be the new Chief Conductor of the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Choir. I am delighted to be able to work together on a regular basis and to continue to develop and reinforce our artistic journey. I am confident that together we will be amongst the best and most prestigious European orchestras. That’s my objective! Or, rather, our objective, now that I can say so.
