Tcha Limberger

Tcha Limberger was born into a musical family of old, with each member playing musical instruments (his grandfather was the legendary Piotto Limberger).

Aged twelve, he started out on the clarinet, joining the family orchestra, the Piottos. In due course, he swapped the flamenco guitar for a Django guitar, learning how to play with the likes of Koen De Cauter and Fapy Lafertin as he went along. At the instigation of Dick Vanderharst and Herman Schamp to name just two, he learned how to analyse music, considerably widening his horizons in the process. When Tcha turned seventeen, he took up the violin and by the time he was twenty-one, he left for Budapest where he took classical and zigane musical classes from Horvat Bela.

Read "Standards" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The stunning repertoire of the young Gypsy multi-instrumentalist and composer, Tcha Limberger is a case in point. A prodigious talent from his very early years, when he performed with the family band Di Piotto's, Limberger has made ...

Tcha Limberger: Gypsy In The Footsteps Of Bela Bartok

Read "Tcha Limberger: Gypsy In The Footsteps Of Bela Bartok" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The hair of the bow gently caresses the string, catching an “A" high on the upper register. Then, in a series of sweeping glissandos, it descends the diatonic scale in a minor mode.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
