Danubia Orchestra Óbuda, renowned for their youthfulness, dynamism and creativity, are a permanent and popular feature on the Hungarian concert scene. Founded by Domonkos Héja in 1993, the orchestra picked up the title ‘National Youth Orchestra’ between 2001-2003. In the years since then, the ensemble have worked with many great Hungarian and foreign guest conductors, and in 2013 conductor Máté Hámori took over the artistic direction. He also conducts the Semmelweis Memorial Year concert, in which the Danubia Orchestra Óbuda – ably supported by young pianist Ádám Balogh – perform four works by composers who lived contemporaneously with physician Ignác Semmelweis. Ferenc Erkel’s Bánk bán overture is followed by the Liszt Piano Concerto in A major, then after the break we have Mosonyi’s Festive Music and the evening rounds off with the Serenade in A major by Brahms.
