Kenicsiró Kobajasi is one of the central figures of Hungarian musical life in the eighties and nineties, who entered the golden book of Hungarian performing arts as the music director of the period after János Ferencsik of the State Concert Orchestra. The Hungarian audience still vividly remembers his enthusiastic, emotionally heated interpretations, which embody the naturalness and directness of music. Among them, Beethoven's symphonies stand out, which he was able to play with incomparable fire, intensity and lyricism. He depicted every facet of the Viennese classical composer with impressive authenticity.

Celebrating his eightieth birthday in 2020, Kobajasi has since captivated audiences in many parts of the world. He also has a close relationship with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra: he conducted the ensemble as the first conductor in the Far East at the Prague Spring Music Festival, and today he is an active player in Japanese music life. His performance with the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is also special because the ensemble's legal predecessor started its operation more than eighty years ago, in 1936, on the initiative and under the direction of Ernő Dohnányi.
