Student resume

I started playing the violin at the age of five under Magdalena Micková and later continued under Jiří Fišer. I have also studied piano for a long time under Peter Toperczer. I am now a student at Dresden’s Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in the Natalie Prischepenko class.

I have won a number of international competitions both in the Czech Republic and in other countries (Jaroslav Kocian International Violin Competition, Concertino Praga, Concours Grumiaux, Kloster Schöntal International Violin Competition...). I made my debut with Master Josef Suk (violin) and the Prague Philharmonia at the age of ten playing the Vivaldi Concerto for 2 violins in A minor. I have appeared a number of times as a soloist with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. As a member of the Incendio piano trio I have won the Giani Bergamo Music Award, the Bohuslav Martinů international competition, COOP Music Awards and the Concorso Internazionale “Marcello Pontillo”, and am also a member of the European Chamber Music Academy. I have also been a grant-holder at the Czech Philharmonic’s Orchestral Academy.
