Principal Guest Conductor – Hungarian State Opera
Kapellmeister – Deutsche Oper am Rhein
Péter Halász is one of the most versatile Hungarian conductors. In recent years he has premiered numerous operas, which won great acclaim from Hungarian and international critics alike, with the conductors’ verve, and precise and analytical work coming in for especial praise. At the core of his repertoire are the works of the First Viennese School and the German Romantics. At the same time, he frequently conducts the Italian repertoire as well as contemporary music.
“Thanks to Péter Halász’s euphoric yet clear and precise conducting, the Budapest Ring possesses a unique dimension and quality – and reaches the standard of the opera houses of Frankfurt or Stuttgart.”
- Deutschlandradio Kultur
“What we hear from the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker under the direction of Péter Halász amazes us again and again. It possesses a finely-honed virtuosity, while at the same time it never overpowers the strong, yet nuanced voice parts.”
- Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
