National Symphony Orchestra Principal Conductor Iván Fischer has been Music Director of the Budapest Festival Orchestra since he founded the celebrated ensemble in 1983. He became Principal Guest Conductor of the NSO in the 2006-07 season, and this season became Principal Conductor. Born in Budapest in 1951, Mr. Fischer is one in a long line of important conductors to spring from the rich musical ground of Hungary, along with Fritz Reiner, George Szell, Eugene Ormandy, István Kertesz, Georg Solti, Ferenc Fricsay, Sándor Végh, the NSO’s third music director Antal Dorati, and several members of Mr. Fischer’s own family. He first achieved public acclaim outside his native land, but returned to participate in the cultural renaissance that began in Hungary in the 1980s and caught fire with the fall of the Iron Curtain.
