I have had a close relationship with music since childhood. I was only ever able to study properly if I was listening to classical music. I have played in orchestras since I was ten years old, and my husband is a former colleague. When I saw Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi live, conducting the Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra, as it was known at the time, I knew I wanted to play the cello in that orchestra. The fact that I am a member of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra fills me with pride, as does the fact that two of my former teachers, for whom I have the greatest respect, are now my colleagues.
Beatrix Fazekas completed her high school studies at the ELTE Radnóti Miklós School and the Béla Bartók Conservatory. She later graduated in IT from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and from the cello department of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. In 1984, she won first prize in the Antal Friss National Cello Contest. In 1985, she received a full scholarship for a summer course at the Interlochen Arts Camp in the US.
From 1996 to 2002 she was a teacher at the Szent István Király Music College. She has been a member of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra since the year 2000.
She enjoys regularly performing in various chamber music formations with her colleagues. She has three children: Fanni, Bence and Dávid.
