Text in englischer Sprache verfügbarBudapest's Orfeo Orchestra is a period instruments ensemble that has performed at concerts and festivals across Hungary. Formed by conductor György Vashegyi, the orchestra consists of 15 to 45 players, and has toured Austria, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Italy, Israel, and South America, appearing at many music festivals. The Orfeo Orchestra was formed in 1991 to perform Claudio Monteverdi's Orfeo, and continued to give concerts with Vashegyi's handpicked vocal ensemble, the Purcell Choir, in repertoire that ranged from Gesualdo to Brahms. The orchestra regularly performs at the Hungarian Haydn Society's Haydn Festival, held at the Esterházy Palace at Fertöd, and the Toujours Mozart Festival in Salzburg and Vienna.
