Gergely Dubóczky

conductor

He is the only Hungarian conductor in his thirties who has worked equally with Zoltán Kocsis, Iván Fischer and Ádám Fischer. Alongside the traditional repertoire he is a committed devotee of baroque and contemporary music, and his name is associated with many premieres of new pieces and performances of cross-genre works. He also frequently conducts theatre and opera productions.

After obtaining a degree in Mathematics he studied conducting at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music Budapest, where he graduated summa cum laude. He continued his studies in New York State and in Vienna as well. He took part in several master classes including those given by Péter Eötvös, Erwin Ortner, Bertrand de Billy and Daniel Harding. In the summer of 2014 he was awarded a Bayreuther Festspiele scholarship enabling him to appear at the Festival. Immediately after graduating he spent two years as assistant conductor of the Hungarian National Philharmonic. In addition to the Medic Orchestra at Semmelweis University, since 2014 he has been the instructor and conductor of the Béla Bartók Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, and with his ensemble Budapest Sound Collective he creates contemporary and multi-genre productions. Iván Fischer invited him to participate in a concert tour in the summer of 2014 during which he worked for the first time with the Budapest Festival Orchestra. Since then he has regularly worked with the orchestra both as an assistant and conductor. In November 2016 he conducted the orchestra at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music as the first conductor in Iván Fischer’s Rising Star series. In 2016 he won first prize in the Atlantic Coast Conducting Competition in Portugal and in 2017 he was invited to the Gstaad Menuhin Festival.
