Conductor - Violinist
Hungarian born Huba Hollókői is a talented, dynamic operatic and symphonic conductor. He has already worked with most leading Dutch orchestras, including Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherland Philharmonic Orchestra, Residentie Orkest, Noord Netherland Orchestra, Holland Ballet Orchestra, and was assistant conductor of Semyon Bychkov with the Concertgebouw Orchestra. He recently had his debut in Amsterdam Concertgebouw with Philharmonie Südwestfalen, MAV Symphony Orchestra and Danubia Symphony Orchestra in Budapest, with Sonderjollands Symfoniorkester (DK), Sinfonia Lahti (FI), Filharmonica Banatul Timisoara and Arad Filharmonia (RO) and with Orkest van het Oosten in Enschede. As an opera conductor, he received excellent reviews with Mozart’s Magic Flute, Marriage of Figaro, Verdi's Rigoletto in Finland, and with Don Giovanni in the Netherlands.
"Total success in Joensuu: Figaro's wedding reaches a high artistic level with the direction of Huba Hollóköi and Markku Pölönen"
Keskisuomalainen, over Le Nozze Di Figaro
"Me and Huba are a bit like Coen's brothers on the cinema side: we freely support each other with our expertise."
Markku Pölönen in Rondo Magazine
"It was a joy to see and hear these young, rising talents on stage. They were led by skilled and committed conductor Huba Hollókői."
Jaquelin van Rooij, operamagazine.nl, over Mozart: Don Giovanni
"Getting director Pölönen and conductor Holloköi together proved to be a real jackpot."
Antti Juvonen, Karjalainen, over Mozart: Magic Flute
"This time, the orchestra was led by a guest conductor, Huba Hollókői ... A direct hit was this choice; the sense of humor of the young conductor is beyond doubt. Not only he understands the musical gags, not only he got them performed by the orchestra with his moves, but in the same time, he suggested that one can never get tired of them."
(Rossini: Crescendo, thematic concert with Danubia Symphony Orchestra, Budapest)
“The young Hollókői is a great talent”
Hannu Ilari Lampila, Helsingin Sanomat,
over Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri
