Hungarian Conductors

9 posts in this topic

For symphonic music, I go for Debussy and Ravel and later; and I tend to gravitate toward the conductors who were active in the early days of the LP era.  

I was recently surprised to learn that many of my favorite conductors from that era were Hungarian, including Eugene Ormandy, Antal Dorati, and Fritz Reiner, who I would have assumed were American, Italian, and German, respectively.  

I guess I should have known this, but my limited knowledge of classical music tends to center around the composers rather than the players or conductors.  

Not sure what any of this means.  I will root for Hungary next time they are in a soccer match.

Oops, wrong forum, I was talking about inexpensive electrical conductors manufactured in Hungary and sold by third-party sellers on Amazon.

As far as I know all nationalities are conductors. Haven't hooked everybody up, but I think this is true.

Hungary was integrated with Austria, which makes it a central part of musical tradition. 

 

Szell, Solti, Fricsay, Kertesz...

Reiner, Ormandy, Dorati, Dohnányi (Ernő) and quite a few others - pretty impressive list actually.
