József Balog is one of the most talented pianists of his Generation. This exceptionally gifted performer was born in 1979 in Budapest as an heir to the internationally well known Hungarian piano tradition established by Franz Liszt, Ernst von Dohnányi, and Béla Bartók.
He has been praised by critics and acclaimed by audiences for his brilliant technic and very deep, sensitive musicianship. Despite his young age, he has a huge repertoire of concertos, recital programs and chamber music. Along with standard piano repertoire, he plays works by neglected composers, jazz, contemporary music and his own transcriptions.
