György Orbán (born 12 July 1947 in Târgu Mureș, Romania) is a Romanian-born Hungarian composer.


Orbán studied then taught at the Cluj-Napoca Academy of Music until 1979 when he emigrated from Romania to Hungary, becoming professor of composition at the Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest, in 1982. His choral music mixes traditional liturgical renaissance and baroque counterpoint with intrusions from jazz.[1]
