Sir John Eliot Gardiner has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest.

The university president Dr. Andrea Vigh said: ‘Sir John Eliot Gardiner is a genuine and outstanding representative of the international
music scene, whose professional achievements have been the subject of intense attention for decades. He is an iconic figure in both the research and the production of historically informed performance.’ She added that the institution gives this honour only exceptionally, with renowned violinist Yehudi Menuhin being the last awardee 20 years ago.
