Hungarian violinist Tamás András was born in Budapest and studied at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music, as well as at the Royal Academy of Music in London.  His talent was recognised at the early age of nine when he won first prize in the youth category of the National Violin Competition in Hungary.  This was the first of many prizes which followed years later.  In 1996 he was prize-winner of the Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition in Denmark, and received third prize at the Joseph Szigeti International Violin Competition in 1997.  His musical development was influenced by great teachers such as György Pauk, Dénes Zsigmondy, Ruggiero Ricci and Mauricio Fuks among many others.

His love of chamber music inspired him to gain experience by playing in various ensembles and to become a founder member of the Fidelio Piano Quartet.  Tamás has given recitals and chamber music concerts throughout Europe and Japan and has appeared with the Fidelio Piano Quartet in prestigious venues and festivals such as the Wigmore Hall in London, The Edinburgh Festival, the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Ravinia Festival in the USA and the Jerusalem Music Centre in Israel.
