Bela Drahos

Béla Drahos was born in Kaposvar in South-West Hungary in 1955 and entered the Gyor Conservatory in 1969, winning first prizes in the 1971 Concertino Prague International Flute Competition and, a year later, the flute competition staged by Hungarian Television.

Study at the Liszt Academy in Budapest led to graduation with distinction in 1978, then to further awards in Prague and, in 1979, at the Bratislava Interpodium. There were also continuing distinctions, including the Hungarian Liszt Prize in 1985, his selection as Hungarian Artist of the Year in 1986 and the award of the Bartok-Pasztory Prize in 1988.

Béla Drahos is the leader and founding member of the Hungarian Radio Wind Quintet and since 1976 has served as Principal Flautist of the Budapest Symphony Orchestra. His concert career has included performances throughout Europe and as far afield as New Zealand.

He has more recently embarked on a parallel career as conductor, and in the summer of 1993 was appointed conductor of the Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra.
