MASTERPIECE 3

And we’re off! For centuries, Hungary has been a powerful inspiration for composers whose imaginations were captured by the country’s romantic beauty and colorful folk music. Highlighted by the world-renowned Romani violinist Roby Lakatos and The Roby Lakatos Ensemble, this symphony of rich melodies and cultural flavor is sure to arouse the most discerning of palates.

Kevin Fitzgerald Conductor

KEVIN FITZGERALD, Conductor

In July 2023, Kevin Fitzgerald won the Special Prize for Best Performance of the Contemporary Piece at The Mahler Competition. He is the first conductor to win this award, a prize sponsored by the Mahler Foundation, which led to him conducting the world premiere of Bernd Richard Deutsch's Con Moto with the Bamberger Symphoniker during the competition's final concert. Kevin was a 2021 Tanglewood Music Center Conducting Fellow and has been awarded Career Assistance Grants by the Solti Foundation U.S. for four consecutive years. He has been Associate Conductor of the Jacksonville Symphony since the 2022-23 season, during which he conducted over 35 performances, including a fully-staged production of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte. In the 2023-24 season, Kevin is excited to make his subscription debut with the Jacksonville Symphony and pianist Joyce Yang, to lead a recording of Sean Shepherd's Concerto for Ensemble with the University of Chicago's Grossman Ensemble by invitation of the composer, and to make his debut with the Cape Symphony. Also this season, Kevin will return to the New York Philharmonic as a cover conductor for three programs, in addition to assisting Stéphane Denève at the St. Louis Symphony.
