Born in 1970 in Budapest, Zsolt began his classical musical training at the age of eight. After a few years, his interest turned to improvisation and composition. Having graduated in jazz piano from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 1996, he embarked on a private trip to New York to study with Jaki Byard in autumn of the same year. He has released sixteen records under his own name, among them the 1999 album “Songs from the 20th Century”, which was awarded the prize for Hungarian Jazz Record of the Year”. Zsolt's piano and synth play often builds on the complete independence of his two hands and is immediately recognizable.
