"...no lack of heat..., expressed with all the crystalline luminosity..."
"...breathtaking, beautifully sculpted phrases, expressive and refined sound, full of character and soul."
"...you seemed to pour yourself, your energy and intelligence and understanding into it..."
" Magnificent music played with such integrity and insight "

Kenneth Walton, Scotsman
and audience members

"...I remember a nail-biting performance he gave.....                                  
......a sizzling Mozart....."

Michael Tumelty, Herald

".... the quality of the performance by Tamas Fejes, which should be leaping to the top of every music-lover's list for Santa. These are virtuoso pieces, but there is an almost effortless feel to much of his playing, no matter how many notes require to be played – and they are all there. Unhurried even in the most frantic passages, the slower, less celebrated, sections like the Andante in Sonata No. 2 are absolutely exquisite..... this beautifully-produced recording was made in Roslin Chapel to the south of Edinburgh...... I will assuredly be in the new RSNO Centre for the second of his album-launch performances on Tuesday evening. No argument."

Keith Bruce, Herald, 3rd December 2016 on Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, released on Discovery label

Tamas Fejes / violin

Tamas Fejes was born into a family of musicians in Szeged, Hungary.  At the age of 10, he won second prize in the Janos Koncz national violin competition.  He studied at  the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, and while there, he gave numerous recitals and was invited to give several appearances on radio and television.

After graduation, a scholarship enabled him to continue his studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.  Tamas has led and co-led various orchestras in Germany, continuing to perform  recitals, concertos and chamber music concerts in the UK, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, USA and Hungary.

He was a member of the Philharmonia Orchestra in London, but is currently the assistant leader of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and also part-time tutor in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Performance in Belgium, featuring Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, played on a modern instrument,“Charme” by Gauthier  Louppe, made in 2010.

In 2006 Tamas founded the Fejes Quartet, with whom he performs in festivals in Hungary, France, Italy and at home in Scotland. They released their debut CD in 2011, and in June 2014 they recorded Christopher Wright’s four string quartets for the Nimbus record label, released later that year to great critical acclaim.

His repertoire includes all the major violin concertos, from baroque to 20th century, and at the end of 2016, he recorded Bach’s complete Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin,  released under Discovery Music and Vision label, and launched the CD in two performances at the RSNO centre to huge acclaim.
