4 January 1896 (age 122)
Praha, Czech Republic
Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1977 by Pavel Prantl and colleagues from the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and today encompasses musicians from both the Czech Philharmonic and Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble debuted successfully under a series of internationally respected conductors including Josef Suk, Václav Neumann and Libor Pešek, though in general performs without conductor. Highly successful tours of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, and Asia were followed by recording contracts with European, Asian, and American record companies for which the orchestra has garnered a coveted Grand Prix du Disque. October 1999 marked the first United States tour of the orchestra.
