Kristóf Baráti VIOLIN
Hungarian violinist Kristóf Baráti is recognised increasingly across the globe as a musician of extraordinary quality with a vast expressive range and impeccable technique. In 2014, at the age of 35, Baráti was awarded Hungary’s highest cultural award, the Kossuth Prize, following in the footsteps of revered Hungarian artists such as András Schiff, György Ligeti and Iván Fischer.
In recent seasons he has made several significant debuts outside of Hungary, including at the Verbier Festival where he performed the complete Sonatas and Partitas of Bach, and with orchestras such as the London Philharmonic and the Zurich Tonhalle, after which Bachtrack described him as “a true tonal aesthete of the highest order”.
Baráti plays the 1703 “Lady Harmsworth” made by Antonio Stradivarius, kindly offered by the Stradivarius Society of Chicago.
