How many differences are there between the job of an early 18th century cantor in Leipzig, and a 21st century one in New York? Surprisingly few. Unlike J. S. Bach, Bálint Karosi, the current cantor of the Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan fortunately doesn’t have to teach but he organizes the musical ensembles of his own church in just the same way, and has to provide music for the acts of worship, just as did his greatest predecessor, and this music can be his own, or that of other composers. On this album we chose from Bálint Karosi’s own orchestral works. Bálint Karosi is an active composer, concert organist, conductor and harpsichordist. He is the prizewinner of the 2008 International J. S. Bach Competition in Leipzig. An avid interpreter of Bach, he has recorded three prior albums of Bach’s music.
