Most of these concerts are performed three times, the venue is the new Béla Bartók National
In this series you can hear the BFO as a chamber orchestra. These concerts feature the orchestra
members as soloists. The repertoire is not exclusively Haydn
and Mozart: we perform works of other composers, as well. The concerts take place at the Italian Cultural Institute.
This new series features the newly formed chamber orchestra of the BFO playing on period instruments. The artistic leader and conductor is Reinhard Göbel, one of the finest experts of Baroque music. The concerts are held in the Italian Institue.
This series of the BFO invites audencies every year to a different palace of Hungary. This year the venue is the Zichy-Hadik palace at Seregélyes.
chamber music concerts:
These concerts are the best opportunity to hear the BFO's
members as chamber musicians. It is our artistic policy to
develop a pool of artists who are excellent both as orchestra
and chamber musicians. The programmes are planned by the players;
often they feature guests who join the BFO's members. The
venue is our rehearsal building.
The cocoa concerts are visited by 5-12 year old children accompanied
by adults. The works are short and specially designed for
the concentration capacity of this age group. Usually
solo works are performed by the BFO's members. Children love
to listen to individual instruments: it is the best way to
awaken their interest to choose an instrument themselves.
After the one-hour programme they all receive a cup of cocoa.
We list our foreign tours here in order to help you if you
