Together with the late pianist Zoltán Kocsis, they founded BFO in 1983 with musicians "drawn from the cream of Hungary's younger players". Ever since its foundation, the BFO's Music Director has been Iván Fisher. The 28 March concert is focusing on Béla Bartók: Romanian Folk Dances, Hungarian Peasant Songs and Bluebeard’s Castle are on the programme. The Festival Orchestra does not simply perform Bartók; they live and breathe his music, and now invite audiences to join them for an entire evening of fantastic spiritual richness and deeply honest music, as stated on their website.
The OPL is very international, : the orchestra includes Hungarian musicians.
With such a tailwind, the young Kadar did not want to secede from music; he studied economy and music. Having his diploma in the pocket, he has never kept away from the world of music. He moved to Luxembourg in 2005 and has been managing communication and marketing for the Philharmonie from the beginning. He strongly believes that musical life of the Grand Duchy is up to that of Berlin, Paris or New York.
