About us

With its 60-year tradition Philharmonia Hungary Non-profit Ltd undertakes a mission of sharing great experiences of classical music with people of varied age, not only by hosting orchestras and soloists of world-renown but by organising youth concerts, festivals and seminars contributing to musical education and talent-spotting as well.

Every year we have 1100 concerts at 213 different venues throughout the country, attracting 288 000 visitors on average. Being one of the prime factors of classical music life in Hungary, in 2014 we provided the opportunity of performing for 109 ensembles and 329 soloists in our concerts. Along with the concerts for adult and young season ticket holders we host numerous festivals as well including Today’s Music Festival, Chuch Music Festival International Bartók Festival and Seminar and Early Music Days. Music contests within the traditions of Budapest International Music Competitions, focused on different instruments in every year, have been a priority.

The upcoming Liszt Ferenc International Piano Competition organised by Philharmonia Hungary commemorates the 205th anniversary of birth and the 130th anniversary of the death of Liszt. Since 1933 when  Budapest International Music Competitions was started,  the competition being held in 2016 will be the 14th in the row of Liszt Competitions. The jury consists of the prominent members of the international music world.

Young musicians from all over the world have an opportunity to represent their abilities by performing an extremely challenging competition material. The Budapest Liszt Ferenc Piano Competition has a high international reputation as a founding member of the World Federation of the International Music Competitions, maintaining a regular co-operation with the participants of other outstanding Liszt Competitions worldwide (in Utrecht and in Weimar). Award winners to be rewarded with generous gratuities and possible concert requests will move their carreer forward.
