Budapest Strauss Ensemble (Chamber Orchestra)

Founded: 1986 - Budapest, Hungary

Founded in 1986 by István Bogár, the Budapest Strauss Ensemble consists of players from the finest of Hungarian symphony orchestras. Although dedicated to the rediscovery and performance of music by the celebrated Strauss family from Austria, the orchestra has a wide repertoire in performance and frequently plays works by such composers as Johannes Brahms, Béla Bartók, Igor Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Franz Liszt, François Couperin and Ravel. Many of the leading players are soloists in their own right and the leader, Peter Hidi, was a recipient of the Liszt Prize.
