Feri Zsolnai [f’ɛri ʒ’olnɑi] is a digital artist. He was born on July 25, 1973 in Budapest, Hungary.
He is best known for his instrumental compositions and unusual arrangements, especially in stage/theatre music.
He started his musical career at the age of 8, when his grandfather (internationally acclaimed viola player Ferenc Zsolnai) advised him to learn playing the piano. However, this soon turned out to be an overly optimistic idea: he stopped taking his piano lessons when he felt he was able to compose his own pieces. His first award-winning score (Becoming Don Quijote, 2000) got a warm welcome from the audience. Two years later, he topped this success with the original score for the play “Bus Stop” (The Wait, 2002), written by Nobel laureate Chinese playwright Gao Xingjian.
He has shown interest in many musical genres, from fractal-based compositions to symphonic arrangements.
While zsolnai is working on his own visions, he is open for artistic collaborations and progressive ideas.
