Arthur Valentin Grósz co-operates in numerous Hungarian and international productions as composer, orchestrator, conductor and keyboardist. Arthur has been playing piano since the age of 4 and started creating short compositions around this time. He received his master’s degree in composing and teaching at the prestigious Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. In his music and work, non-genre creation plays an important role; he likes to combine styles; however, his classical qualification enhances symphonic orchestration. He has been writing film scores since 2004, a key point of which was a concert together with Ennio Morricone, where he performed as a keyboardist. He has composed over 30 film scores; one of which is the multi-award-winning music of the drama “The Shepherd” directed by László Illés (Los Angeles Film Awards, Oniros Film awards, etc.). The movie is also available on Netflix. His underscores for TV series (Keresztanyu; Hotel Margaret, etc.) regularly appear in major television channels’ productions (RTL Klub, TV2, MTV). He has also written music for theater plays and musicals. (Péter Gothár / Mole; Andrea Sztárek / You’ll be a star) He composed the symphonic overture of the European Youth Olimpics Festival (EYOF) for the Philharmonic Orchestra of Győr and the Győr Ballet, presented in front of an audience of 16 000 people, aired live on 50 TV channels. His compositions also appear in video games. As an example: numerous music publications written for game developer company ZEN Studios co-developed with world famous enterprises, such as Universal Studios or DreamWorks.
As an orchestrator and keyboardist, he is a regular participant of the HAVASI Symphonic concert series, and he also makes orchestrations and orchestral transcriptions for countless performers. Not only as an arranger, but also as a music producer and a conductor he participates in symphonic orchestral recordings of international movies and games; just to mention a few, he has worked on movies such as Misconduct (cast: Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino) or Misfits (cast: Pierce Brosnan), and also the score of Patrick Doyle’s IT. Among his albums, he has not only published film scores, but instrumental pieces, as well. ”The Legend of the Golden Deer (2001),“ is a crossover style album inspired by “Kitaro” and “Vangelis”. His next album was “Missio (2003),” then “Missio 2 (2004).” These albums can best be described as a blend of trendy Gregorian style and pop music. One song from the Missio 2 has been selected for an international selection called Gregorian Dreams with Enigma and Era. His musical language as a composer and orchestrator can be best described as light classical combined with “crossover.” In his composition technique he always focuses on harmony. He teaches film score courses at Werk Academy. Since 2015 he has been a Member of the Hungarian Film Academy Association.
