HarrisonParrott France is delighted to welcome Gábor Káli to its roster for worldwide general management.
After replacing Iván Fischer upon the maestro’s request in April 2019 with the prestigious Budapest Festival Orchestra, earning rave reviews and standing ovations in major cities and venues such as Budapest, Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, and Paris and Luxembourg Philharmonies, Hungarian Gábor Káli positioned himself as one of the most promising young conductors.
In 2019/20, he is invited to conduct Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at Dresden’s Semperoper upon Christian Thielemann’s invitation. This follows Káli’s huge 2018 success at Deutsche Oper am Rhein, conducting Verdi’s Rigoletto. In summer 2019, he performs at Salzburg Festival with ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien.
In the coming seasons, his intense opera experience leads him to make his debut at the prestigious Bayerische and Hamburg Staatsopers. Other recent and upcoming highlights establish him as a powerful leader of symphonic formations, with invitations to major orchestras such as France’s Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and Orchestre National de Lille, London’s Philharmonic Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Taiwan National Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra, among many others.
Gábor Káli was awarded the prestigious Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award in 2018. In the same year he also won first prize at the inaugural Hong Kong International Conducting Competition.
