About Szabolcs
Szabolcs Oláh is a Hungarian jazz guitarist. He was born in Budapest, Hungary and raised in
Bicske where he studied violin at the local music school. Szabolcs started playing the guitar at
the age of 15 and was taught by Attila Csikos. In 2001 he attended to the Liszt Ferenc Academy
of Music, Budapest where he graduated in 2005 as a jazz-guitar performer and teacher. Not
long after that, he started to play with the best musicians of the Hungarian jazz-scene. His first
band, the ‘Olah Szabolcs Quartet’ was very well received by the critics and he led them from
2002 to 2010. At the age of 18, Szabolcs started composing his own music and since the
Academic years, he was also working on big band arrangements. Beside his own groups, the
music written by him is also performed by several Hungarian bands, with great success, such
as the Budapest Jazz Orchestra, the Modern Art Orchestra, the Szöke Nikoletta Trio, the Dés
András Trio, the Fekete-Kovács Quintet and the Balázs Elemér Group. Most recently, he
founded a new band, the Oláh Szabolcs Quintet, with outstanding young musicians of the
Hungarian jazz-scene. Their first album, the ‘Connection’, has been released autumn of 2013.
