Iva Bittová crosses all boundaries. The Czech violinist-vocalist moves gracefully between jazz, Eastern European folk, classical music and avant-garde. She plays the violin like no other and her voice covers an astonishing spectrum of timbres and styles, from shrill screams and chirps to lush, warm depths. Iva herself says that most of her music comes to her with violin in hand. She plays and sings and feels her way toward melodies and harmonies until they begin to melt into unique compositions with a creative power that leaves no listener untouched.
Her astonishing first concert at the Molière will remain engraved in our memories. For the curious and the music lovers: this is a concert not to be missed under any circumstances!
“Her vocal and instrumental technique is formidable, but what is most impressive is the imaginativeness of her excursions. (She) plays music that mixes elements of both deep ethnic traditions and the classical avant-garde. At its best, it really does have the strengths of a self-created folk music, unique and idiosyncratic, but with the stark power of Balkan singing or Hungarian fiddling.” –The Boston Globe
