The world famous Rajkó Orchestra offers a unique musical experience. The fifty strong main orchestra and the six to eight splinter chamber groups are equally celebrated guest on the world’s most prestigious stages

The incredible range of their repertoire covers many genres from classical to folk music, and from operettas to gipsy music, of course. This company of young gipsy musicians was established in 1952. The ensemble is a symbol of youth, talent and constant reformation. Their gift is born from the traditions of century old gipsy dynasties. The exceptional professional skills of the Rajkós are due to a special educational method that contrentrates on preserving their natural aptitude for improvisation an essential precondition of virtuosity.

The success and achievements which have already been enjoyed by the Rajkó Orchestra include highly successful tours throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia and Far East where they have thrilled and fascinated audiences. They have often appeared on National Television and Radio and have a number of acclaimed recordings.

The twin of the Rajkó Orchestra is the Rajkó Folk Ensemble. This fiery young group of about sixty dancers was formed 50 years ago. The high professional attainment of the Folklore dancers is largely due to eight to ten years of intense training which begins at a very early age. They are true professionals dedicated to achieving the very highest standards. They specialize in Hungarian folk dance but are equally able to perform operettas, ballet, and modern dance.
The fame and recognition of Rajkó Folk Ensemble has become associated with that of the Rajkó Orchestra as they often perform folklore and operetta programs together, their joint spectacular shows always attracts large audiences wherever they go.
