The Budapest Festival Orchestra, rated among the world's top ten classical music ensembles, is launching a program to find and develop young musical talent. The complex program, which is already keeping tabs on the development of 11 young talents, is supported by the AutoWallis Group, which itself relies on the value-added work of talented young people.
A statement by AutoWallis says that although many young people have joined the Festival Orchestra in the past three decades, it has become more important than ever to find new musical talent, which has led the classical musical ensemble, considered to be in the top ten in the world, to launch a talent scout and motivation program. “It is no easy task to find the best young musicians. Many Hungarians continue their studies abroad, meaning the Liszt Academy is no longer the only place where Hungarian talent gathers,” the orchestra's Managing Director, Orsolya Erdődy explained.
Nevertheless, finding young talent and offering them attractive prospects for the future is one of the important goals of the Festival Orchestra, and it requires methodological work. “Talent not only has to be found but also developed and prepared for participating in the BFO’s musical activities,” Music Director Iván Fischer said. For example, the Orchestra's famous Cocoa Concerts and Community Weeks, which has them playing in churches,
old synagogues, and retirement homes, are excellent opportunities to attract talent.
The supporter of this complex program is AutoWallis Group, an automotive company registered on the Budapest Stock Exchange: the vehicle sale company with operations in 14 countries in the region will help the Orchestra nurture young talent over the next four years. “The AutoWallis Group is happy to support the Budapest Festival Orchestra because we believe that we share many values. Besides quality, these include innovation, openness, and a no-border approach. We are proud to be a key supporter of the BFO as part of their talent scout and incentive program,” CEO Gábor Ormosy pointed out.
Orsolya Erdődy added that "this noble task will be entrusted to the most experienced of our brass musicians, who, thanks to the supported program, will be able to dedicate time to finding and providing musical education to the best talent after three decades of intensive work.”
The program is led by tuba player József Bazsinka, who has been an Orchestra member for nearly 30 years. “The task I have been given is very rewarding but also very difficult. Every bright-eyed child in Hungary who learns music lives a unique life of his or her own talent. At the moment, we are following the development of eleven talented young people who are all outstandingly gifted; it is worth paying attention to them and helping them with the BFO’s knowledge and opportunities,” József Bazsinka highlighted.
