Pianist Peter Horvath Quartet
Contemporary jazz pianist/keyboardist and composer, Peter Horvath has been perfecting his craft since the age of 6 when he began taking classical piano lessons. Born in Budapest, Hungary, he attended the Bela Bartok Conservatory of Music. Son of famous Hungarian singer Zsuzsa Matrai, Peter had a natural and intense desire for music. At age 17, he won the National Jazz Combo Competition in Gyor, Hungary, and two years later he moved to Austria to attend the Vienna Conservatory of Music. Establishing himself rather quickly in the Austrian jazz scene, he began playing and touring with jazz notables, such as Leo Wright, etc.
In 1983, Peter moved to the U.S., where he studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He has since performed, toured, and recorded with a long line of world-class artists. He toured with jazz greats Bobby Hutcherson, Joe Henderson, Richie Cole, Ernie Watts, Eddie Henderson and Benny Maupin. He recorded, performed, and toured nationally and worldwide with the Victor Bailey Group, Lenny White, Arturo Sandoval, Randy Brecker, Marcus Miller, Pee Wee Ellis Funk Assembly, Bob Mintzer, Bob Sheppard, Tiger Okoshi, Lalah Hathaway, Melba Moore, Ledisi, Keith Washington, Rosie Gaines, Ray Obiedo, Pete Escovedo, Kenneth Nash and the Oakland Symphony. Peter composed for and performed with David Garibaldi for his Warner Brothers video/CD series, and recorded the tracks for Aretha Franklin's performance of the National Anthem at the 1993 World Series.
Peter Horvath's first solo recording, "Foreign Matter", (Lake Street Records) has received enormous national contemporary jazz radio airplay. In its first week of release, it was the #1 most added recording to Gavin's Adult Alternative Chart, and #2 most added to Radio & Record's NAC Chart.
Peter's talent as a pianist/keyboardist is matched by his role as a composer and producer. Horvath's diverse background is manifested in his performances and compositions, with both complexity and clarity . . . from straight ahead to funk to contemporary jazz. Performing with a passion, and heightened by his fiery personality, he uses every ounce of energy to convey his finely crafted compositions. Horvath is a serious artist with more than mere entertainment in mind, combining appealing melodies with plenty of sound for thought.
SPOTLIGHT ON OUR
Adrian Martinez, Architect AIA
Environmental & Sustainable Design
Architectural Design is both science and art but it is so much more
After over forty years in the profession, first in commercial interior design and later in architecture, I feel a deep involvement and commitment to creating the best quality design for each individual client.
Architectural Design should suit the client’s style and the context of the site. Space, volume and natural light are of equal importance.
The most important elements of good design are aesthetics, functionality and sustainability, while working within the client’s budget.
Environmental and sustainable elements should be integral to all good design and construction, including intelligent use of natural resources and integration into the site whether it be urban, suburban or rural.
I work closely with my clients to interpret their desires and needs thereby creating an environment unique to them and their lifestyle.
