Bassoonist Ondřej Šindelář is a member of the Czech Philharmonic. In addition to working in the orchestra, he is also intensely involved in early music and no less in period instruments and the history of the bassoon.
He completed his training in Basel, where he studied with Sergio Azzolini at the Academy of Music (Hochschule für Musik). After graduating from the Academy, he went on to study at the Cantorum Basiliensis School, to further develop his passion for Baroque and Classical music and historical instruments. He has gained orchestral experience through his engagements in Czech and European orchestras, such as the Prague Symphony Orchestra FOK, PKF - Prague Philharmonia, Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra in London, Kremerata Baltica, Camerata Zurich and Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland.
In his collaboration with the ensemble Opus Elocutio, they explore the combination of string and wind instruments in chamber music; the wind ensemble Sesto focuses on the genre ‘Harmoniemusik’. Šindelář often tries to include in his projects various instruments from his bassoon collection.
