“ As early as during his studies he was awarded several prizes in guitar contests. He won the first prize in the national guitar competition in Kutná Hora with a special award for interpretation of Baroque music. He studied guitar at Prof. Stanislav Juřica at the Conservatory of Pardubice in 1993. He continued in the same class studying lute and finished his studies giving a graduate’s concert in Hradec Králové in June 1999.
These days he works as a director of Art and Music School in Havlíčkův Brod. He gives solo concerts and participates as a lutenist in various chamber choirs (LA VIA Přibyslav, Musica Fresca etc.). When interpreting Renaissance and Baroque songs accompanied by lute, he cooperates with the sopranos Jana Nováková, Helena Pellarová, Anna Hamadová (SK) and the mezzo-soprano Pavla Fendrichová. He organizes educative concerts called‚ Lute presents itself‘ for schoolchildren and students. He has participated in the audio recording The Country of singing (children’s choir, lute) and two multimedia CDs of the company Fenomen multimedia a.s. (1999-2005). German, Swiss, Slovenian and American audiences have had a chance to appreciate his mastery over and over again.
He takes an active part in senior courses in the guitar festivals in Mikulov (in the classes of e.g. P.Steidl, L. Witoszynský, J. Wagner), in Valtice (in the English lutenist B. Wright’s class) and in Slovenia (A. Kröper). He has gained valuable experience at the interpretation course of the Japanese lute-player S. Noiri. He was graduated from Academy of Old-time Music by the Philosophical Faculty of Masaryk University in Brno, in Miloslav Študent’s lute class. ..“
