dubrovay laszlo webLászló Dubrovay Was born 23 March 1943 Budapest. He started his music studies at the age of five when his father gave him piano lessons. Later on, his teacher was Viktor Vaszy. In the Béla Bartók Secondary School for Music he was pupil of István Szelényi, and at the Ferenc Liszt Music Academy he learned composing from Ferenc Szabó and Imre Vincze. He graduated with honour in 1966.


From 1964 he''s taught at the Academy of Theater and Film under the guidance of Kálmán Nádasdy. From 1971 to 1972 he worked as répétiteur of the Hamburgische Staatsoper. Between 1972 and 1974 he continued his studies with Karlheinz Stockhausen as scholarship holder of the DAAD. During these years he got acquainted with the new music opportunities of electronic studios, the latest results of sound research, but also with various composing techniques. He took courses in electronic music, guided by Hans-Ulrich Humpert.

In 1974-1975, Dubrovay was commissioned by Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Cologne, to realize the electronic composition Sóhaj (Sigh) in the electronic studios of WDR. Since 1975, he has taught music theory at the Budapest Academy of Music, where he''s been a reader since 1989.

Within the frames of the DAAD Künstlerprogram, he was invited to West Berlin in 1985, the same time when Luigi Nono spent a year there. He''s realized electronic and computer music productions in the big studios of Europe (Stockholm, Cologne, Freiburg, West-Berlin, Lüneburg, Bourges, and Budapest). He''s held lectures in English and German all over the world (Island – Reykjavik, South Korea – Taegu, USA – La Jolla). He has composed in almost every music genre (opera, ballet, orchestral, choral and solo works, as well as wind orchestral, choral, electronic and computer music).

He came in first place at several international composing contests (Szczecin 1973, Triest 1974, Linz 1992, and Budapest 1997). In 1986 he was honored with the Critics'' Choice Award of the Hungarian Radio, and with his composition EARmusic he won the Niveau Prize of the Hungarian Radio in 1995. He was also awarded with the Erkel Prize in 1985, the Bartók-Pásztory Award in 1986, the title Merited Artist in 1999, the Award for Hungarian Art in 2001, and the Kossuth Prize in 2013.
