Biography Writings Scores Audio & Video Ragtime
TamasTamás Ittzés

Well, my name looks differently here than in the upper menu bar. Because up there it is used in Hungarian, i.e. family name comes first then the given name: Tamás means Thomas. Anyway, this portion of the site is about half of me. Only half, as ragtime and traditional jazz is my other half. But, according to my profession, I am a classical violinist. So you can learn a little bit more about my "serious" part of life on these pages. Have fun!


You can hear and see the Fuge from Bach's C major Solo Sonata for Violin below. It was recorded at a concert in the Liszt Hall in Debrecen on the 16th of September, 2009. (The camera was almost on the ceiling, hence the strange angle. The video has been compressed in order to make it available on the net, therefore the picture runs a little late and the sound is not studio quality, either. But it's still enjoyable.)

I must confess you, your band is the best oldtime jazzband, which I've ever heard in my life. You do a real music with heart. Each of you had me deep impressed.
(Dai Kimoto, CH, 2010)

The music the Bohém played in Davos was excellent. Tineke and I found the last evening in Steigenberg the best performance.
(Willem Peul, NL, 2010)

I want to tell you that I appreciated very much your band which is a perfect balance of traditional jazz, entertainment and music from your country with plenty of humour. And this combination by excellent musicians.
(Michel Bastide, F, 2010)

A tight-knit, disciplined, and intensely swinging ensemble. [...] The arrangements by Ittzés are both stylistically true and brilliantly inventive.
(CBMR Digest, Chicago, USA)

Temperament, Komik und Show zogen sich als verträgliche Einheit wie ein roter Faden durch den spektakulären Auftritt.
(Die Union, Deutschland)

Die Ungarn zeigten eine unbändige Spielfreunde, gepaart mit viel Humor und zurückhaltenden Show-Einlagen.
(Harz Kurier, Deutschland)

Mit ihrem temperamentvollen, mitreissenden Ragtime spielte sich die ungarische Bohém Ragtime Jazzband in die Herzen der Zuhörer und hinterliess einen glänzenden Eindruck. [...] Sie sind eine perfekt aufeinander abgestimmte Band, in der jeder sein Instrument virtuos beherrscht. Und das zeigte sich nicht nur imgemeinsamen harmonischen Zusammenspiel, sondern auch in den zahlreichen wunderschönen Soli.
(Kölner Rundschau, Deutschland)
