Flutist and conductor, Pál Németh is the founder of Savaria Baroque Orchestra, head of the Budapest Chamber Opera and art director of Art Days Baroque Music Festival in the Bükk (Bükki Művészeti Napok Barokk Fesztivál), and one of the pioneers of the Hungarian old music scene. Besides the main objective of performing the masterpieces of music literature he aims to trace down the forgotten values of music history and make them publicly known. The band he manages has a wide repertoire of audio recordings, concerts, opera and oratorio performances, several world and Hungarian premieres.

The study and presentation of Hungarian music history takes up a prominent part of their work (eg, the birth of verbunkos, Harmonia Caelestis by Paul Esterhazy, Michael Haydn's works in Nagyvárad). Particularly noteworthy in this respect is the performance, recording and film production of the oratorio St. Stephen, Hungary's First King by Antonio Caldara.

In cooperation with the Budapest Chamber Opera, Savaria Baroque Orchestra is intent on putting masterpieces of music literature on stage (e.g., the complete works of Cl. Monteverdi, Tigran, Great King by A. Vivaldi and GF Handel's Orlando and Semele). In addition, it is an important objective of theirs to educate the youth of valuable music. In order to achieve this they hold regular small-cast opera performances for the youth in Budapest and across the country in schools, community centers, theaters, and concert halls.
