Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin, Symphony Orchestra ORF in Vienna, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra


Milan Horvat 1919-2014, Croatian conductor of great international reputation,
was born in a small town of Pakrac east of Zagreb


Maestro Milan Horvat

On Wednesday, on 1st of January 2014th, in 95th age, a respected maestro Milan Horvat left us, honorary chief conductor of the Zagreb Philharmonic, the longtime president and a member of the Lovro and Lilly Matačić Fond.

Outstanding career took him to all corners of the world and in many of the world's most famous orchestras, a huge repertoire "is characterized by perfect precision and relief design." For five years, from 1951 to 1956, he was chief conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin. Than in 1969 up to 1975 he led the newly formed Symphony Orchestra ORF in Vienna. He is an honorary conductor of the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, and the 1981st permanent guest conductor and honorary member of the Slovenian Philharmonic. He led the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra in some of his most glorious moments in Salzburg, Venice, Marseille, Geneva, Vienna, USA. He collaborated with the greatest soloists of the world such as Mstislav Rostropovich, David Oistrakh, Yehudi Menuhin, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, etc. The key to hisvitality was, as he put it, his "hunger for music." In one word: Maestro.

Maestro Milan Horvat died in 2014 at the age of 95.

 
Maestro Milan Horvat studied at the Academy of Music in Croatia's capital Zagreb, end he earned his diploma with Melita Lorković and Svetislav Stančić. It is interesting that he earned his PhD in Law, and after that he completely devoted to music. His career of professional musician started in 1946. From 1951 he was the chief conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin.

I rememeber that once, in an interview, he described how he liked to arrive to the Zagreb railway station in order to listen to the sound and rhythm of locomotives.
