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.

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, Benny Maupin, Bob Sheppard, and Tiger Okoshi.

He recorded, performed, and toured nationally and worldwide with the Victor Bailey Group, Lenny White, Arturo Sandoval,Randy Brecker, Lalah Hathaway, Melba Moore, Ledisi, Ray Obiedo, 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.
