Gábor Takács-Nagy | conductor
A native of Budapest, conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy is a direct heir to Hungary’s rich musical tradition – especially that of Bartók, Ligeti and Kurtág – by way of his teachers and companions. He has a great love as well for Mozart and chamber music in general. Upon leaving the world- famous Takács Quartet that bears his name in 1992 he turned to conducting, achieving great success and working with soloists including Sebastian Bohren, Maxim Vengerov, Vadim Repin and András Schiff. Gábor Takács-Nagy is musical director of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra and the Budapest Festival Orchestra and regularly conducts the CHAARTS Chamber Artists.
