It was with a diploma in mathematics that conductor Gergely Dubóczky started his studies at the Liszt Academy of Music, where he graduated with summa cum laude honours. He also studied in the state of New York with a scholarship from Bard College, and later in Vienna, in the class of Mark Stringer. Among others, he has attended the master classes of Péter Eötvös, Erwin Ortner, Bertrand de Billy, and Daniel Harding. In the summer of 2014, he performed at the Bayreuth Festival on a scholarship from the Festival itself.

In addition to his main instrument, the piano, he also studied the bassoon and the cello. He has participated in theatre productions both as an accompanist and as a conductor, and worked with choruses for several years. He is equally dedicated to baroque and contemporary music: well-versed in the art of the baroque continuo, he has also been responsible for the world premiere of many a contemporary work.

He regularly works with Hungarian orchestras. After graduation, he was assistant conductor of the Hungarian National Philharmonic. He leads the Medical Students’ Orchestra, which comprises students of Semmelweis University, and since September 2014, the symphonic orchestra of the Béla Bartók Conservatory. In addition to projects he is invited to participate in, he undertakes such special ventures with his own ensemble, the Budapest Sound Collective, as the programme called Haydn–Esterházy: Last Seven Words, presented with great success in April 2014, and the first part of the Elements series, debuted at the 2014 Café Budapest.

He has collaborated with Iván Fischer and Budapest Festival Orchestra since 2014.
