Biography

The Prague Philharmonic Chorus (or Choir), formerly Czech Philharmonic Choir is one of the world’s most prominent and highly regarded choral bodies. Founded as the Czech Choir in 1935 by Pavel Kühn, the ensemble was originally affiliated with Czechoslovak Radio; in 1953 it was integrated with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Under Kühn’s successors, Josef Veselka, Veselka’s pupil Lubomí­r Mátl, and Jaroslav Brych, the choir has developed into a fully professional ensemble and assumed an important role on the international concert scene. It has collaborated with such renowned conductors as Erich Kleiber, Hermann Scherchen, George Szell, Rafael Kubelík, Václav Neumann, Leonard Bernstein, Seiji Ozawa, Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Kurt Masur, Charles Dutoit, Riccardo Muti, Riccardo Chailly, Claudio Abbado, Christoph von Dohnányi, David Zinman, Sir Simon Rattle, and Sir Charles Mackerras. Independent since 1990, the choir now performs and records regularly with the world’s great orchestras, including the Berlin, Vienna, and Israel philharmonics, and, of course, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
