Organist Bálint Karosi
Since winning the International Bach Competition in Leipzig in 2008, Dr. Karosi has been recognized as one of the leading interpreters of the music of J. S. Bach worldwide. He is one of the few organists in North America to improvise regularly in recitals in authentic Baroque style, which is informed by his research in Baroque improvisation techniques of the 17th and 18th centuries. His opera, Lonely Hearts, won the “Most Dramatic Opera” award and audience vote at the 2020 Contemporary Opera Showcase at the Hungarian State Opera. Karosi is also an acclaimed conductor. He now serves as the Director of Music at St. Peter’s Church in New York City.
