Sounds of classical and jazz music

The world famous pianist and composer Franz Liszt was born in the county of Sopron that is why the Symphony Orchestra of the city took his name in 1929 – when the orchestra was already one hundred years old.

Beside its duties in the region, the orchestra often represents Hungary and Sopron abroad, e.g. at the Bayreuth Liszt Festival in Germany (2019 and 2021).

The renowned conductor, Péter Kóczán has been leading the Sopron Liszt Symphony Orchestra – the oldest orchestra of Hungary – since 2013. He studied at the Music University Vienna (MDW) and attended masterclasses of Riccardo Muti, Johannes Wildner and Simeon Pironkoff. He has made numerous recordings with international soloists such as Péter Somodari, Jenő Jandó, Katalin Csillagh and Ekaterina Frolova.
