Czech Philharmonic

Semyon Bychkov, Music Director

"Its wind and brass still play with a coloration that registers as earthier and more textured than that of most European and American orchestras."
Allan Kozinn - New York Times

"The Czech Philharmonic’s live performance breathes a conviction and beneath-the-skin rapture that you won’t find in any other recording."
Financial Times - Review of the Czech Philharmonic's recording of Josef Suk's Asrael Symphony

"The Czech Philharmonic boasts a burnished and refined European sound, with a warm, string-dominated center, brilliant brass and inimitable, characterful woodwinds, which serve music of their native compsers Dvorak, Janacek and Martinu so well."
Lawrence Johnson - Miami Sun Sentinel

About

For over a century, the Czech Philharmonic has represented the pinnacle of Czech cultural achievement. In 1896, Dvorák conducted the orchestra’s debut performance at the Rudolfinum in Prague, still home to the orchestra’s Prague concerts, and the centre for its new Orchestral Academy. In 1908, Mahler conducted the Czech Philharmonic for the world premiere of his Symphony No.7. In 2012, Jiří Bělohlávek returned as the orchestra’s Chief Conductor. Under the baton of the inimitable Jiří Bělohlávek, the Czech Philharmonic looks forward to entering a new era, combining tradition with innovation as an orchestra at the height of its powers.
