The PKF – Prague Philharmonia, originally called the Prague
Philharmonia, was founded in 1994 at the initiative of the worldfamous conductor Jiří Bělohlávek to bring a breath of fresh air
to the Czech and the global music scene in the form of a contagious
élan and a drive to achieve superior performance of every detail
of the score.
Soon after its founding, the PKF – Prague Philharmonia joined
the ranks of the most respected Czech orchestras and established
great renown in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
In its “manifesto”, the orchestra highlighted vigour, energy, and
perfectionism, as well as a tremendous love for the music, with
which it imbues each and every concert.
The PKF – Prague Philharmonia is beloved for its characteristic sound,
created in large part by the key focus of its repertoire: Viennese
Classicism, pieces by Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,
and Ludwig van Beethoven. This area is the ensemble's primary
domain, and an area at which it excels. The spirit of the art from
this historical period is perfectly reflected in the PKF – Prague
Philharmonia credo: to play with crystal-clear purity and
a straightforward, sparkling passion that will ensure that every
listener, regardless of age or profession, may understand every detail
of the music performed and return home from its concerts full of joie
de vivre. The art presented by the PKF – Prague Philharmonia is both
exceptional and accessible to everyone.
The repertoire also includes Romance compositions, as well as modern
and contemporary music, performed within a Special Concert series
unique among the selections of Czech orchestras.
At the threshold of the 2015–2016 season the respected French
conductor Emmanuel Villaume will take the helm of the orchestra
in order to enrich it with his distinctive perspective on a limitless
repertoire of classical music and a dynamism all his own.
His predecessor for seven seasons in the post of Chief Conductor
and Music Director was Jakub Hrůša, a representative of the younger
generation now ranked among the global conducting elite. Second
Chief Conductor of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia was from
2005 to 2008 the Swiss conductor and flautist Kaspar Zehnder.
The ensemble's founder, the globally celebrated Czech conductor
Jiří Bělohlávek, was at its helm until 2005, when he was named
the orchestra's Conductor Laureate.
The PKF – Prague Philharmonia is a regular guest at international
music festivals, frequently performs at prestigious world concert halls,
and is a regular partner of world-famous conductors and soloists
including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Milan Turković, Jefim Bronfman, András
Schiff, Shlomo Mintz, Sarah Chang, Isabelle Faust, Mischa Maisky,
Magdalena Kožená, Anna Netrebko, Natalie Dessay, Rolando Villazón,
Plácido Domingo, Elina Garanča, Juan Diego Flórez, Radek Baborák,
Thomas Hampson, Adam Plachetka, Diana Damrau, and many others.
7
To date the orchestra has recorded more than 60 CDs for prominent
Czech and foreign labels, including Deutsche Grammophon, Decca,
Supraphon, EMI, Warner Music, Harmonia Mundi, and Pentatone.
Some of its albums have received such prestigious accolades
as the RAC Canada Gold Disc (2000), the Harmonie Award (2001),
and the Diapason d'Or (September 2007).
Guest artists featured on the PKF – Prague Philharmonia's recordings
include Anna Netrebko, Eva Urbanová, Magdalena Kožená, Isabelle
Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Iva Bittová, Peter Dvorský, Dagmar
Pecková, Bryan Hymel, and many others. The most critically
acclaimed album is the live recording of the orchestra's
performance of Smetana's My Country at Prague Spring 2010,
conducted by Jakub Hrůša.
When it comes to music education, the PKF – Prague Philharmonia
nurtures the talent of young musicians through its Orchestral
Academy project. This project enriches their practical experience
of playing in an orchestra, thus boosting their competitiveness
on the music market. From 2008, the Philharmonia has been partnering
with the District Office of Prague 5 to present the Talent of Prague 5
competition, which offers young musicians the chance to perform
in public with professional players.
Moreover, it is the first orchestra in the Czech Republic to offer
Special Concerts for children and parents. Thanks to its design,
the program does not come across as dryly educational but acquaints
children with classical music in a highly entertaining format.
In addition to concert series for children, the PKF – Prague
Philharmonia also holds performances for schools in the Czech
language and in the fourth season in the English language as well,
the only program of its kind in the Czech Republic. The programs
for children include the Notička Children's Club, which strives
to enhance children's aesthetic faculties and extend the possibilities
of their leisure time activities.
The PKF – Prague Philharmonia is supported by the City of Prague
and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.

Dear listeners and friends,
Allow me the great pleasure of once again presenting to you
the program of our new season, in which we have tried to strike
a proper balance of various styles and genres that we believe
will bring you great pleasure and benefit.
Right from the first page you will note the biggest change, not merely
for you, but for the orchestra as well. The Music Director and Chief
Conductor of the orchestra from this season is Mr. Emmanuel
Villaume. We hope that the work of Mr. Villaume in PKF – Prague
Philharmonia will be as successful as his predecessors, and we hope
that he will evoke in you the same positive artistic appreciation
as he has in our musicians at the Philharmonia.
There has been talk for quite some time about the need for a new
concert hall in Prague, and now we have succeeded in finding
new space in the newly renovated Forum Karlín multimedia complex.
The acoustic possibilities of this hall enthused us so greatly that
we decided to organise two concerts here from our main subscription
season so that we might introduce this hall to you as a newcomer
to Prague cultural life.
13
To further increase the appeal of our artistic activities we have also
accepted an invitation from Mr. William Lobkowicz to prepare a concert
for you at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle, where you will
be in awe not merely of the beautiful music and panoramic view
of Prague, but also the splendour of the Caesar Hall.
With our new Music Director and the entire PKF team we have sought
to present a balanced selection that will include all the elements
characteristic of PKF.
I am greatly pleased that in the upcoming season we will continue with
the concept of the elves Šíma and Lupi at the Rudolfinum in Saturday
subscription concerts for our youngest listeners, and our educational
projects for schools mean we have quite a few smaller attendees.
One inspiring discovery for us has been the interest in a cycle
performed in the Czech Museum of Music, which will take place this
year in a French mood.
I should also mention the cycle of contemporary music, The Beauty
of Today, which has undergone a certain adjustment and conceptual
change not merely in the selection of compositions, but also
in the person of the dramaturge and moderator of the program.
This cycle of six concerts will be devoted to exceptional Czech
musical personalities of the 20th century, and you will be intrigued
by the various authentic recordings, film projections, and interesting
debates with our guests.
Dear listeners, I hope that the menu of music and style we have
presented will not only help you get to know other cultural settings
in Prague, but that you will have the opportunity to pursue ever greater
artistic experiences with our Philharmonia.
I believe that evenings spent in the company of PKF – Prague
Philharmonia will be a pleasant diversion for you from all that you
do, and an investment of your time and favour that will bring you
great dividends.
Regards
Radim Otépka
Managing Director

Dear Concertgoers and Friends of PKF,
It is a great joy and privilege to introduce to you our 2015–2016 season
and my first as Music Director and Chief Conductor of this beloved
and unique institution. I have already had numerous opportunities
to perform and record with PKF – Prague Philharmonia in Prague
and abroad: I never cease to be impressed by the virtuosity, musical
flexibility, and artistic commitment of its members in a wide
spectrum of repertoire.
We have tried to reflect the many facets of PKF’s talents in the season
to come. For our opening concert, Beethoven's glorious and granitic
Symphony No. 7 will be introduced by Webern's crystalline Five Pieces
for Orchestra, Op. 10, connecting two masterworks of the First and
Second Viennese Schools. In the first part, legendary violinist Augustin
Dumay will take the stage for Mendelssohn's brilliant Violin Concerto,
preceded by Ravel's charming, lithe, and immaculately orchestrated
nod to baroque dance forms, Le Tombeau de Couperin.
Linked to Ravel is his friend, Bohuslav Martinů, the brilliant Czech
composer who studied in Paris with Albert Roussel. Martinů's works,
as well as the compositions of his master and colleagues during his
Paris years, constitute one of the main themes of the season. Our
beloved founder, Jiří Bělohlávek, will present Martinů’s Double
Concerto for Two String Orchestras, Piano and Timpani; my esteemed
predecessor, Jakub Hrůša, will conduct Albert Roussel’s Petite
Suite, Op. 39; and I will lead Martinů's Serenade for Chamber
17
Orchestra, H. 199. Another friend of Ravel, Claude Debussy, also had
a strong influence on Martinů, and we will present several of his works
too: his early symphonic suite, Printemps, and his imposing
masterwork, La Mer. We will also present, for the first time in Prague,
a work by a companion of Debussy who was not so famous but
who was fully representative of the Martinů musical milieu in Paris:
the Suite Française by Maurice Emmanuel.
PKF has always had a strong commitment to the classics, and we are
thrilled to perform several works by Mozart and Beethoven and their
Romantic follower, Mendelssohn – the latter whose music appears
not only in our season opener but also with the Italian Symphony
led by Julian Rachlin and the “Lobgesang” for soloists and chorus
that will close our season.
Music of our time will also be represented: Czech popular music’s
Iva Bittová will perform some of the music she just brilliantly recorded
with us in a concert conducted by Kaspar Zehnder, PKF’s second
Chief Conductor. We will premiere a new work by Czech composer
Michal Nejtek, and Matthias Pintscher, one of the most sought-after
composers of our time and the new Music Director of the prestigious
IRCAM, will present a program featuring his own music as well
as works of Ravel, Wagner (with Dagmar Pecková), and Beethoven.
Outside of the fabled Rudolfinum, in the same spirit of diversity and
exploration, we will also present two concerts in the perfect acoustics
of the Forum Karlín and two at the Lobkowicz Palace with horn legend
Stefan Dohr and oboe sensation Ramón Ortega.
In a season that ranges from chamber to large-scale works, from
Bach to contemporary music, we hope you will have as much
pleasure experiencing this program as we had creating it for you.
Emmanuel Villaume
Music Director and Chief Conductor
19
Next season the PKF – Prague Philharmonia will be significantly
impacted as it initiates new artistic leadership under conductor
Emmanuel Villaume. After years of successful management
by Jakub Hrůša, this will mark a new era in the evolution
of the orchestra. We wish our new conductor, and all our
musicians, a happy and inspired entry to this new collaboration.
Prof. Jiří Bělohlávek, CBE
Music Director Laureate
21
Ladies and gentlemen, dear benefactors of PKF – Prague Philharmonia,
A new season is before us. We enter this season with great expectations
in the person of Mr. Emmanuel Villaume, our new Music Director
and Chief Conductor, and also with a commitment to showing you
once again that we are worthy of your support and favour. A year
ago I promised you on this very spot that the administrative board
will work with the orchestra leadership to look into the future
and seek to bring you innovative concepts and a desire to keep
our Philharmonia at the top of the music scene at home and abroad.
Our vision is to be stylish yet modern, to capture trends that can
help our orchestra succeed in the face of stiff competition; we want
to honour our traditions yet be daring.
I hope that our efforts have borne fruit and that we will captivate you
and enhance your positive perceptions of PKF – Prague Philharmonia.
I believe that the upcoming season will meet your expectations and
confirm what we pride ourselves in – an amazing relationship with you,
our listeners and supporters.
We wish you many wonderful musical experiences!
Martin Klimpl
Chairman of the Administrative Board

the beauty of today
thE CZECh 20th CEnturY
In the 2015–2016 season the cycle The Beauty of Today will
be devoted to exceptional Czech composers of contemporary music.
We will present six important figures ranging from the beginning
of the 19th century to the present. The chamber soloists among
the members of PKF – Prague Philharmonia will perform better
and lesser known pieces from the repertoire of these celebrated
artists and ensure an extraordinary atmosphere with help from
invited guests of various professions, who will transport us to
the times in which the individual composers lived and worked.
Part of the evenings will include projection, authentic recordings,
and topical debates in which we share space with you, our listeners.
We hope that this excursion into an environment of Czech music
and more may enrich your moments spent in the company
of PKF – Prague Philharmonia.

The NOTIČKA Children's Club was first founded nine years ago
at PKF – Prague Philharmonia (then the Prague Philharmonia).
Its original purpose was to offer smaller visitors of our popular
concerts even more intense, deep, and child-focused contact with
classical music and art. During the course of the year NOTIČKA
organizes five to six meetings, which with the passage of time have
become oriented not merely on musical works or musical education,
but which allow children the opportunity to develop their aesthetic
sensibilities as such and learn all kinds of new things.
The purpose of NOTIČKA meetings is for children to experience
something extraordinary, something they don't normally experience
on weekends with their parents, and for them to carry away a unique
experience that will enable them to better remember topics not
normally covered in their usual education. Children from NOTIČKA
are exposed to various signs or points of interest from an entire world
of art and history, and therefore have no problem understanding
the connections between the various artistic movements and trends
or creatively expressing themselves.
NOTIČKA is designed for children between 4 and 14 years of age,
and in 2012 the NOTIČKA Preparatory Program was established,
which is attended by children between 3 and 4 years of age.
In 2014 a total of 170 children in NOTIČKA and the NOTIČKA
Preparatory Program set off on an expedition into the historical periods
of prehistory, the Stone Age, the Middle Ages, and modern times.
The children discovered the fashions of prehistoric peoples, the Celts,
and people in medieval times. They spun thread with a spindle, wove
on a loom, created mandalas, and poured wax figurines and seals.
They also focused on the music from those periods or learned
the basics of Celtic and medieval dance. One of the most interesting
occasions was the opportunity to try out the principles of musicotherapy.
This year NOTIČKA is setting off on a musical expedition with children
to all corners of the world. During five weekend meetings, entitled
“The World Around Us, or 'What don't you know about...',” they will visit
the Czech Republic, Australia, Africa, Japan, and Scotland. They will
learn new traditions, customs, and local culture, encounter fascinating
musical instruments and artistic techniques native to the specific
locations and countries, and catch a glimpse of the mysteries
of musical instrument manufacture.
NOTIČKA is greatly supported by the City of Prague, through whose
grants the existence of this project is made possible.
Learn more about the club at www.praguephilharmonia.com.

The PKF – Prague Philharmonia Orchestral Academy was established
in 2008 as the very first project of its kind in the Czech Republic. Its aim
is to seek out talented music school students and graduates and provide
them with practical experience of playing with an orchestra. Due
to overwhelming interest, the number of the Academy students has
increased from five to the current twelve or fourteen in the wake
of the first year of this unique project's existence, a number that will
be matched in the 2015–2016 season as well. This project makes
it possible for talented young musicians to gain high-quality practical
experience performing with an orchestra while affording the orchestra
the opportunity to boost its ranks with fully-fledged young players.
In 2009, some Orchestral Academy members participated in the unique
YouTube Symphony Orchestra project, while two of them, Jakub Fišer
and Ondřej Martinovský, performed alongside 90 other chosen
musicians from around the world under the conductor M. Tilson
Thomas at New York's Carnegie Hall. Also a member of the Orchestra
Academy was horn player Kateřina Javůrková, winner of the Prague
Spring International Music Competition 2013. This serves as proof
of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia Orchestral Academy's exceptionality
and usefulness to its members.
The Orchestral Academy of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia is primarily
intended for students of secondary schools and universities of music,
as well as graduates whose musical education has been completed
through leaving examinations at the secondary-school or university
level in the Czech Republic or abroad, who possess the artistic ability
to perform in the PKF – Prague Philharmonia or other orchestras
of similar quality. This one-year course is intended for musicians
aged between 18 and 30 from the Czech Republic, EU member states,
and other countries. Membership and the associated scholarship
may only be obtained twice.
The PKF – Prague Philharmonia grants applicants membership
in the Orchestral Academy and its associated year-long scholarship
on the basis of an audition. Throughout the duration of the course,
students undergo a comprehensive educational program that includes
individual teaching of parts under the guidance of the concert masters
and leading players of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia. At the same
time, they gain invaluable orchestral experience in the form of artistic
participation in PKF – Prague Philharmonia projects at home and
abroad, concerts of chamber and contemporary music, recordings
of CDs, and numerous other activities such as seminars with soloists,
conductors, and other visiting internationally renowned artists.

sElECtEd rEViEWs in thE 2014–2015 sEason
“Perhaps in celebration of the fact that this orchestra has (rightly)
survived uneasy times, in the second half it collaborated with the Prague
Philharmonic Choir to present the famous symphony Ode to Joy.
And they did so quite well, measuredly yet with precision and energy.”
Věra Drápelová, MF Dnes, 7. 10. 2014
“The concert had an appealing program with music to which
the ensemble regularly returns, and which represents them at their
best. Entirely in accordance with expectations the atmosphere
of the PKF concert, which somehow manages to be both informal
and elevated, surpassed that of the VIP commencement concert
of the Czech Philharmonic.”
Jindřich Bálek, Lidové Noviny, 7. 10. 2014
“In this regard a truly happy constellation was formed under the care
of PKF and J. Bělohlávek, which managed to meaningfully capture
and interpret the quality of this notable work. The execution itself was
a model example of the famous style of care with which PKF takes
on the study and performance of a specific selection of works on which
they have based their renown.”
Julius Hůlek, Hudební Rozhledy, 12/2014
“For twenty years now the PKF has entertained me not merely with
the level of their interpretation but the concept of their concerts and
the selection of soloists and variables. PKF has again proven that
the most contemporary music is not played by the Orchestr Berg alone,
and that it has a lead over such honourable orchestras as the Czech
Philharmonic and the Prague Symphony Orchestra.”
Luboš Stehlík, Harmonie, 20. 1. 2015
“The PKF – Prague Philharmonia is an excellent orchestra and to hear
them play music by Czech composers is very special. No doubt they
will play it straight from their hearts.”
umberto Fanni, Times of Oman, 7. 2. 2015
“PKF – Prague Philharmonia is truly a gathering of excellent soloists.
Such a composition, it's a pleasure working with them! For these
colours to have been formed completely outside their normal dynamic
range and register requires extraordinary instrumental abilities.
And this need not be the case with orchestras that do not define
themselves as a group of soloists, nor even with those of extraordinary
renown. If you want each player to individually express themselves
in some way, it won't necessarily happen. Here this has been the case,
and for that I am deeply grateful to PKF.”
Miroslav Srnka, Scena.cz, 16. 2. 2015
“Emmanuel Villaume guides with a sure hand and sustains
the excellent support of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia, whose
playing is truly exciting at times. Thankfully, Warner Classics realized
that performances of this caliber deserved to be placed in proper
musical context and therefore employed the Czech Philharmonic
Choir of Brno to provide stirring backup.”
Patrick Mack, Parterre Box, 24. 2. 2015
“Faust’s invocation of Nature from Berlioz’s Damnation is beautifully
sung, and here Emmanuel Villaume’s leadership and the playing
of the PKF – Prague Philharmonia reaches its peak.”
Robert Levine, Classics Today, 3/2015
