Hungaria Orchestra Folk Ensemble

Founded by gipsy musicians, the ensemble’s gift and their key to success is the inherited traditions of centuries old gipsy art. Their work’s based on the tradition and the heritage of old, allows us to rightfully call them world famous. The exceptional professional skills of the Hungaria are due to the special educational method that concentrates on preserving their natural attitude for improvisation an essential precondition of virtuosity.

The Rajkó Orchestra performs in lots of different formations, the fifty strong main orchestra and the six to eight splinter chamber groups are equally celebrated by guest on the world’s most prestigious stages. They are also adept at accompanying well known soloists and dance ensembles. The incredible range of their repertoire covers many genres from classical to folk music, and from operettas to gipsy music, of course.

An equally high reputation has also been gained by the Rajkó Folk Ensemble. This group of 60 fiery performers owes its current status to decades of hard work of their predecessors. They specialise in Hungarian folk dance but are equally able to perform operettes, ballet, and modern dance. The high professional attainment of the dancers is largely due to eight to ten years of intense training which begins at a very early age. They are true professionals dedicated to achieving the highest of standards.
