Mátyás Antál (Conductor)

Born: 1945 - Budapest, Hungary

The Hungarian conductor, Mátyás Antál, was born into a family of musicians and completed his training at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest as a flautist and a conductor.

In 1972, the year after graduating, Mátyás Antál joined the Hungarian State Orchestra as a flautist, but in the last ten years has been principally employed as a conductor, specializing initially in contemporary music. In 1984 he was appointed chorus-master of the Budapest Choir and two years later became associate conductor of the Hungarian State Orchestra. He appears frequently as a conductor in his native country as well as in East and West Germany, Austria and Greece, and has made a number of recordings for Hungaroton.
