Transcendental music: Leave a legacy!

"Why did I include the Budapest Festival Orchestra in my Will? It's simple. I have no official heir or family. I was wondering what should happen to what I leave behind. It's not a fortune though. What has brought me so much joy in my old age and occasional loneliness? Classical music. It has helped me through hard times and always touched my soul. So eventually, the only thing that came into my mind was my favorite orchestra," our testator wrote.

A gift in your Will ensures Iván Fischer’s dream, and your dreams, for the future of BFO can live on beyond our lifetimes.

Your gift will:

  • Open the eyes and ears of young people to the beauty of music
  • Nurture the talents of future generations of rising stars
  • Help us reach new audiences around the world
  • And secure our future for many generations to come.

Wherever you are in the world you can leave us a Gift in Your Will.

You can leave us even 1% of your wealth, or more if you would like to, so that your family inherits the remainder. Or you can leave us an affordable sum of money.

If you would like your gift used for a specific purpose we would love to hear from you so that we can fulfil your wish.

Inheritance laws around the world are different and it is important to take professional advice. But your Will gives you the freedom to choose what you would like to pass on to future generations.

The only information you need is our name and address. Please contact Zsuzsanna Deák directly at

The Budapest Festival Orchestra is the orchestra of the future. By including our orchestra in your will, you can ensure the survival of classical music and the BFO for the next generations. With your responsible and generous help, we can improve our musical, education and training programs and build the future together. Before you make a decision regarding your will, we suggest you consult your family and your attorney.
