Czech Philharmonic UK Tour

In April 2015, the Czech Philharmonic with the Chief Conductor Jiří Bělohlávek will tour six cities of the United Kingdom. Soon after its founding in 1896, the Czech Philharmonic became the most noteworthy orchestra in the country – even as soon as before the First World War the orchestra had built a considerable reputation for itself in concert halls across Europe. Over the course of its 118 year history, the orchestra has fostered numerous significant personalities among its ranks. The Czech Philharmonic has always represented genuine artistic merit, and its tradition and success has uplifted it to a fundamental symbol of Czech culture.

Under the baton of Jiří Bělohlávek
Leading the ensemble as Music Director and Chief Conductor since 2012, he helps to retain the orchestra’s unique sound. Read more about Jiří Bělohlávek.
