Gilbert Varga

Gilbert Varga, son of the celebrated Hungarian violinist Tibor Varga, studied under Franco Ferrara, Sergiu Celibidache and Charles Bruck. A commanding and authoritative figure on the podium, Varga is repeatedly acclaimed for his ability to draw out a broad range of colours and emotions from the orchestra. In North America Varga regularly guest conducts the symphony orchestras of Houston, St Louis, Atlanta, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Minnesota, Utah and Nashville, and in Europe works with the major orchestras of Berlin, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Cologne, Budapest, Porto, Brussels and Glasgow among others. In May 2013 he was appointed principal conductor of the Taipei Symphony Orchestra. Gilbert Varga was chief conductor of the Hofer Symphoniker (1980–1985), and of the Philharmonia Hungarica (1985–1990), conducting their début tour to Hungary with Yehudi Menuhin. In 1991 he was appointed permanent guest conductor of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra until 1995, and from 1997 to 2000 was principal guest conductor of the Malmö Symphony. From 1997 to 2008 he was music director of the Basque National Symphony Orchestra. Gilbert Varga is represented by Intermusica.
