SAXOPHONIST

Daniel started to play the saxophone at the age of 10. Shortly after that, he got interested in improvisation and jazz. From the age of 13 he was playing every week in the local church (Nagykanizsa). In high school he became a private student so he could go to the Hungarian capital, Budapest, where he was taking private lessons from the professors of the jazz conservatory and academy (Gábor Kollmann and István Elek).

After high school he got accepted to the Béla Bartók Conservatory while at the same time he was already studying Theology at the Saint Paul Academy.

In 2013 he left Hungary and started studying at the University of Performing Arts in Graz (KUG) in Austria. His teachers were Julian Argueles and Heinrich von Kailnein.

 

He is present as soloist and as bandleader in the Eastern European Scene. In 2019 he was invited to participate and compete at the Michael Brecker International Saxophone Competition, where he ended up in the best 8 from the world.
