In the summer of 2015 he collaborate with the internationally acclaimed artists: violist Yuri Bashmet and the conductors Alondra De La Parra and Daniel Harding. Tamás has participated in the first and second series of the talent show Virtuózok. Fort he first he did not make it to the finals, however, in the second series he came out as not only the winner in his age group but also as number 1 virtuoso of the entire competition. He plays 12 instruments including the dulcimer, the violin and the double bass. Since the latter stands the nearest to his heart, he wishes to pursue his studies and music career as a double bassist.
