St. Barnabas Episcopal Church's BACH@415 Concert Series

More About St. Barnabas Episcopal Church's BACH@415 Concert Series

On Sunday, May 20 at 4:15 pm, Bach@415 Concert Series at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church presents a rising star in the countertenor world, Daniel Moody and internationally-acclaimed concert organist Dr. Bálint Karosi. Directed by the ever fervent J. Michael Roush, St. Barnabas’ acclaimed music director, Bach@415 features an exquisite array of choral works and organ music from the sacred Baroque period in the church’s contemporary sanctuary located at 954 Lake Avenue, Greenwich, CT.

Recently Roush has introduced many Greenwichites and those beyond, to a myriad of rarely heard and well-known Bach cantatas as part of the popular Bach@415 Concert Series. The Pentecost Vespers Concert opens with J.S. Bach’s Cantata No. 35, Geist und Seele wird verwirret, (“Spirit and Soul become confused”), performed by vocal soloist countertenor Daniel Moody accompanied by the Saint Peter's Bach Collegium and St. Barnabas Choir. The program concludes with award-winning concert organist and composer Bálint Karosi performing G.F. Handel’s Organ Concerti Op 4 and Op 6.

“The music of these two Baroque masters promises to resound jubilantly on the Richards, Fowkes & Co. Opus 1 pipe organ” says Roush. Sitting high in the rear gallery, its sonorities bound through the modern spaces of the church with extraordinary elan. “What’s more, we are especially thrilled by the presence of two exceptional musicians.”

Praised by the New York Times as having a “vocal resonance, (which) makes a profoundly startling impression and for his “vivid and powerful voice” by The Boston Musical Intelligencer, Moody is well known this season for his exciting debuts with Portland Baroque Orchestra (David Hill conducting) and the Great Music in a Great Space Series (Kent Tritle conducting), and he recently won a $5,000 prize from the George London Foundation this past February.

Born in Budapest, Dr. Bálint Karosi is an active composer, concert organist, conductor and harpsichordist. Winner of the Leipzig International Bach Festival and other competitions, Karosi has appeared as recitalist at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Béla Bartok National Concert Hall, the Liszt Academy in Budapest and the Boston Early Music Fesitval. His performances, including his Concerto for Organ and Symphony have been featured on American Public Media’s nationally syndicated radio program Pipedreams. In 2015, Karosi was appointed as Cantor at Saint Peter’s Lutheran Church in midtown Manhattan, where he oversees an ambitious musical program, with frequent performances of choral and orchestral works.
