György Orbán, one of this country’s most incisive contemporary composers, celebrates his 70th birthday this year. He is the leading Hungarian representative of an easy listening style that draws on traditions of music’s past as opposed to the avant-garde. He shaped his own musical language by being receptive to the greatest possible inspirational influences; this has made his works highly popular among a wide segment of the listening public. Although so far his oeuvre has covered a broad range of genres and performance modes (he is associated with many film and stage soundtracks), his principal work is defined by oratorio and choral works.
