With an impressive list of international concerts to his credit, violinist Endre Balogh has performed as soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Zürich Tonhalle Orchestra, Frankfurt Symphony, and Basel Symphony. In the United States, he has appeared with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the orchestras of Seattle, Denver, Dallas, Honolulu, and Washington, DC, among others. During his career, he has worked with such eminent conductors as Zubin Mehta, Edo de Waart, James DePreist, Lawrence Foster, Milton Katims, and Christoph von Dohnányi.

Balogh has done several U.S. and European concert tours, which have included live televised recitals in Amsterdam and taped performances for the BBC. He is an accomplished chamber music performer and toured throughout North America and Europe with the Pacific Trio for nearly thirty years. He has also played with such luminaries as Vladimir Horowitz and Leonard Pennario as well as in the acclaimed series of 1993 chamber concerts, “André Watts and Friends.”

For decades, Balogh performed with his friend and colleague James Smith, chair of the Department of Classical Guitar at the University of Southern California, until Smith’s death in 2010. Still performing regularly with other world-class colleagues, Balogh has also collaborated with the nationally known theater repertory company A Noise Within to compose original music for their productions.

His compositions are published by Alfred Music and Guitar Solo Publications and have been recorded on Delos, Denon, Digital Revolution, GSP Recordings, and Massax Productions. His music has been performed throughout the United States in venues including Merkin Hall in New York, the Ambassador Auditorium in Los Angeles, and the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, as well as abroad in Tokyo, Madrid, Sāo Paulo, and Dubai.
