László Gál already knew as a schoolboy that he wanted to become an orchestral musician. “Making music with others makes me happy,” says the Hungarian, who was familiar with the profession from an early age through his father and grandfather, both principal horn players in Budapest orchestras. He also fell in love with the versatile sound of the horn, which blends well with both woodwinds and brass. So it was only logical that he too wanted to learn this instrument. He was winning 1st prizes in national competitions while still at school.

In 2015, László Gál came to Berlin to study at the University of the Arts under Christian Friedrich Dallmann. He then attended the orchestra academy of the Staatskapelle Berlin and gained his first orchestral experience in the Staatskapelle playing third horn, before being offered a position with the Berliner Philharmoniker in May 2022, an orchestra with which he has felt a connection from an early age.  “I grew up with the recordings of the Berliner Philharmoniker and never imagined that I would one day be able to play with them. It’s a dream come true!”
