Strictly speaking, I’m still too busy to be posting stuff here, but have decided to pop out of hibernation briefly to tell you all about this upcoming event at Papa Jon’s Eatery. It’s too important not to.
Among the musical acts at last year’s TEDxKyoto the stand out performance came from violinist Tomáš Mach. And the short speech he gave before playing (unfortunately not recorded in the video below) was almost as moving and profound as his music. I am very excited at the opportunity to see him play live again. If you are free on Friday the 10th – YOU HAVE TO GO SEE TOMAS MACH.
Czech violinist, composer and educator.
Studied at Conservatory in Teplice, Czech Republic and at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA.
Winner of International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
Former profesor at Music Conservatory in Prague and teacher at Bangkok Symphony Music School in Thailand.
Tomas Mach performed all over Europe and USA.
Played along with many famous stars such as opera singer Andrea Bocelli, jazz star Bela Fleck, bluegrass legend Tony Trischka and many others.
In his music Tomas connects classical music with jazz and world music.
Tomas Mach plays master violin made by one of the world’s greatest living violin makers – Maestro Riccardo Bergonzi, Cremona, Italy.
This violin is a copy of famous violin called Hellier, made by Antonius Stradivarius in circa 1679.
