Description
The orchestra was formed in 1983 by Ivan Fischer and Zoltan Kocsis, with musicians "drawn from the cream of Hungary's younger players," as TheTimes of London put it. Their aim, through intensive rehearsals and demanding the highest standards from musicians, was to make the orchestra's initially three or four concerts per year significant events in Hungary's musical life, and to give Budapest a new symphony orchestra of international standing.
