Chinese and Belgian Awards to BFO

The two concerts given by the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer in Beijing last October have been awarded the Classical Elite award for Best Symphonic Concerts of the Year in China. It is China’s only classical music award, the judges include many of China’s most distinguished commentators and critics.

The Flemish classical music site Klassiek Centraal has given its Golden Label Award to the Wagner concert of the BFO given this March in Bruxelles. The Award will be handed over to Iván Fischer before the orchestra's concert on April 28th in Antwerp.
