Tamas Fejes is the assistant leader of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and a part time tutor at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Born in Hungary, Tamas has been a prize winning violinist since the age of 10, later studying at the Franz List Academy of Music in Budapest and the Guildhall School of Music in London. It has been his lifelong ambition to record Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin.
Tamas states: “These works have been a source where I find the essence of violin playing. I feel deeply attached to these masterpieces. One can feel to be on a journey of discovering its unique language, seeing its various aspects and noticing, hearing new, ever relevant universal messages. Like reading the Bible.”
These words may illustrate why it was a particular privilege to offer him the opportunity to work in the unique acoustic atmosphere of Rosslyn Chapel during the winters of 2014 and 2015.
