Music that ministers! America's New Gospel Pianist, Alex-Zsolt, has a sincere passion to present the gospel through music that is inspirational. With his God-given talent, Alex presents music that ministers to people of all ages.
In the past fourteen years, Alex has visited over 1,000 churches. Here are just some of the ways the spirit of God is moving His people through Alex's music ministry:
"I don't know where to start in thanking you for the wonderful day of music we enjoyed here in La Jolla last Sunday. Not only was the music so well performed, but your spirit of love and humility definitely touched our hearts." - Barbara, Music Minister, La Jolla Christian Fellowship Church, La Jolla, CA.
With a focus and desire to honor the Lord, Alex shares hymns, praise and worship songs, as well as his own compositions and arrangements with a deep and passionate energy that he says is given to him by the Lord. "God gave me a special energy at the piano so that the music can move people in a way that allows the passionate message of Jesus Christ to be conveyed through music." Alex doesn't just "play" the piano, he ministers through the piano, connects with people, and has been encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring since the start of the ministry.
To date, Zsolt has released ten CD projects, many of which are collaborations with composer and arranger, David T. Clydesdale. Late 2009 marked the debut of Alex's first nationally published book of piano arrangements titled, Draw Me Nearer - Inspirational Hymn Settings for Solo Piano. The book, as well as the accompanying CD project itself are available through Lillenas Music. The release of his first collaborative solo piano book titled, Gospel Gold was released in June 2010 through Hal Leonard publishing company. Five other books have followed as well.
