Profile

Award-winning violinist, Tom Suha was born into a musical family of pianists, violinists and conductors in Budapest, Hungary. Just to highlight one example, his great uncle was the world famous pianist, George Cziffra.

“Mr. Suha plays on a very high level with keen accuracy. The repertoire choices he makes are challenging and he has an amazing affinity for the difficult music of Paganini. He exudes confidence and demands attention from the listener, favoring a strong, healthy sound. I have enjoyed being able to see him perform and look forward to keeping up with his career´s progress.”  Martin Chalifour, Principal Concertmaster of Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra

Tom decided to become a violinist at the age of two. Due to his young age he could only start his violin lessons two years later, meanwhile he was already improvising on the piano and violin. Tom’s first violin teacher was Elizabeth Skultety, the niece of one of the greatest violin professors of all time, the teacher of Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein and many others, Leopold Auer. After his early years of violin studies he began to study at the Bela Bartok Highschool of Music, where he studied in the class of the famous Hungarian soloist, Vilmos Szabadi and the author of “Book of Hungarian Violin School”, Laszlo Denes. In 2009 he graduated from the Franz Liszt Music Academy as best in class, where his professor was Lajos Foldesi, student of Ruggiero Ricci and Semjon Snitkovsky. Tom Suha after finishing his studies has given numerous masterclasses and besides classical recitals, began to work on his own arrangements.
