Dohnanyi Orchestra Budafok became a key player in Hungarian musical life in the past twenty years, mainly owing to the joint efforts in the ensemble and the music director’s conscious educational work. The Orchestra has in recent years been a favourite among the audience, due its youthful radiance, extraordinary virtuosity, outstanding culture of sound and proficiency in almost every style.
Orchestral work rests on wide-ranging musical and human cooperation, which in fact cannot be mastered in any level of musical training.
