Established after World War II in 1945 by the Hungarian State Railways, the rolling orchestra and opera house carried music and operas to the destroyed towns all over the country. Today, the orchestra counts ninety professional musicians and is ranked among the best professional orchestras in Hungary. The orchestra has developed a wide-range repertoire from Baroque music to works by contemporary composers. It has performed with internationally renowned conductors such as Lamberto Gardelli, Kobayashi Ken-Ichiro, Franco Ferrara, Carlo Ponti Junior as well as soloists such as Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras (MAV participated to the legendary Three Tenors concerts).
