Czech Philharmonic

Semyon Bychkov, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic

"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

The Czech Philharmonic – which made its debut in 1896 under Antonín Dvorák – has an extraordinary legacy reflecting its place in the pantheon of the great European orchestras as well as its distinct location embracing both Eastern and Western Europe culture and tradition. Internationally acknowledged for its definitive performances of Czech composers Dvorák, Janácek, Martinu, and Smetana, the Czech Philharmonic is also recognized for its relationship to the music of Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Mahler, who was of Czech origin, and whose Symphony No. 7 they premiered in 1908. Now led by Chief Conductor Semyon Bychkov, the all-Czech orchestra makes its home in Prague at the Rudolfinum and proudly represents their homeland throughout the world as an esteemed and cherished cultural ambassador.
