A propos de la personne
Antal Váradi was born in 1975 in Debrecen (Hungary). He studied organ and church music in his homeland and furthered his studies in the class of Prof. Ludger Lohmann at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. He passed his performers’ examination with distinction and is a qualified A-diploma church musician and voice teacher. Váradi has been awarded a number of prizes at international organ competitions (e.g., Nürnberg, Freiberg, Schramberg, Coldrano, Zurich). He is the boys’ choir collegium iuvenum Stuttgart’s accompanist, organist of both the Holy Cross Church and St. Thomas’ Church in Stuttgart and organ expert for the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Württemberg. He is also a sought-after accompanist for various choirs. Váradi’s intense interest in adapting symphonic works to the organ gave rise to the following arrangements: The Night on the Bare Mountain by Mussorgski, Harmonies du soir and Dance Macabre by Liszt and The Vltava by Smetana. He is active as a concert soloist both in Germany and abroad.
