Jan Fišer

The PKF – Prague Philharmonia concert master is one of the leading young Czech violinists. As a soloist he has performed in Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, France, Poland, Spain (Paul Casals International Music Festival), Switzerland (Murten Classics), Japan and USA (Brevard Music Festival). He regularly records for television and radio.

As one of five laureates of the International Kocian Violin Competition, he played for the CD ‘Homage to Jan Kocian’ released for the 40th anniversary of the competition. He devotes a great deal of time to chamber music; the Dvořák Trio that he founded with pianist Ivo Kahánek and cellist Tomáš Jamník is one of the top Czech chamber ensembles. Fišer studied at the Prague Conservatoire with Jaroslav Foltýn and at Carnegie Mellon University – School of Music in USA with Andres J. Cardenes, concert master of Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

He complemented his studies with master-classes in Semmering, Bonn and at the renowned Meadowmount School of Music with Stephen B. Shipps. He also took part in masterclasses with Pinchas Zukerman, Gil Shaham and Joseph Silverstein.

Apart from being the PKF – Prague Philharmonia’s concert master, he also often takes on the role of its artistic leader and occasionally conductor.
