After a 4-month COVID-break Gergely has been back to conduct a various collection of works by Dukas, Bach, Grieg, Franck, Schumann, Jongen, Mozart, Beethoven and Bizet at the helm of the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège in July 2020.
Gergely also took part in a special “drive-in concert” organised by the reopening Palace of Arts in Budapest, to perform famous arias and ensembles of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro and Rossini’s Barber of Seville together with the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra and some of the foremost Hungarian singers.
At the end of August, Savaria Symphony Orchestra hosts Gergely’s farewell concert in Szombathely, Hungary, after finishing his 6-years tenure as their Principal Conductor. The programme includes the overture of Mozart’s Magic Flute as well as Brahms’ Haydn Variations and Symphony No. 2.
Gergely’s 2020/21 season kicks off with a recording for the Parisian label Alpha Classics together with the OPRL, featuring rising star cellist Victor Julien-Laferrière, then continues with OPRL’s season opening events both in Liège and at the Bozar in Brussels.
