He is giving concerts regularly all across Europe in prestigious venues such as the Ehrbarsaal in Vienna, Mozarthaus in Augsburg and the Fricsay Hall in Szeged.
Zsombor was born in 1997. He got his early musical influences from József Eötvös at the Franz Liszt Academy for Music in Budapest where he was a junior student. Since 2013 he has been studying with Paolo Pegoraro at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Graz. Due to his interest in musical composition he had the privilege to take lessons with Beat Furrer and also to collaborate with ensemble Cantando Admont at performing Furrer’s and Solage’s works in the Otto Wagner church in Vienna.
In 2016 he received the scholarship from the City of Graz: „Begabtenstipendium der Stadt Graz”.
