Phenomenal triumphal march
The Budapest Festival Orchestra concluded this year with a phenomenal triumphal march. The Times, The New York Times and the British Gramophone magazine all included the BFO’s rendition of Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 in their year-end lists of best recordings. On top of all these, the CD got the special prize of the 55th Record Academy Awards 2017, held by the japanese Record Geijutsu Magazine. The Hungarian Gramofon magazine commended two Festival Orchestra albums.
