István Bogár (Conductor)

Born: 1937 - Budapest, Hungary

The Hungarian conductor, István Bogár, graduated from the Ferenc Liszt Academy as a composer in 1963, after earlier instrumental studies.

In 1968 István Bogár became deputy editor-in-chief of Editio Musica Budapest and in 1972 he was appointed to the position of dramaturge for the National Philharmonic. Since 1976 he has been musical secretary to the Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra, under János Ferencsik, and since 1983 director of the music ensembles of the Hungarian Radio.

In addition to his varied work in musical administration, István Bogár has won a reputation as a composer and as a conductor, often of his own compositions. He has appeared in recent years with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra and Budapest Strauss Ensemble, touring Switzerland and France with successful programmes devoted to the work of Johann Strauss. This has brought invitations from Italy, Belgium and England for further tours.
