Leamington Music Festival


Founded in 1998, the KINSKY TRIO PRAGUE is one of the outstanding Czech chamber ensembles. Since 2004 the Trio has had the honour of bearing the name ‘KINSKY’ by kind permission of the aristocratic Czech family from Kostelec nad Orlicí. The Trio studied at the Academy of Music in Prague under Václav Bernášek, cellist of the Kocian Quartet, has taken part in several master classes (e.g. with the Guarneri Trio and the Florestan Trio) and regularly consults with the famous Czech pianist Ivan Moravec and with Pavel Hůla, first violinist of the Prazak Quartet. The Kinsky’s international career has taken them all over Europe  (Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, England, France, Lichtenstein), the U.S., Canada, Mexico and also the Seychelles. They regularly record for Czech Radio, and their concerts have also been broadcast in Mexico and the U.S. In 2007 - 2009 the Kinsky Trio Prague organized its own series of chamber concerts at the Stone Bell House, an historic inn on the Old Town Square in their home city of Prague.

Since 2009 the Kinsky Trio Prague regularly record CDs for the French label Praga Digitals (distributed by Harmonia Mundi). Their recording of complete piano trios by Bohuslav Martinů has been warmly recommended by international music critics (Diapason, Gramophone, Classica, Harmonie, etc.). The other CDs include compositions by Czech composers Foerster, Novák, Janáček and Fibich , and less known Russian trios by Borodin, Rimsky Korsakov and Arensky.


This event is organised as part of the YEAR OF CZECH MUSIC 2014 programme

2014 is a remarkable year for Czech music, with over sixty prominent Czech composers, performers and musical organizations celebrating anniversaries – from Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, Leoš Janáček, Bohuslav Martinů and Josef Suk to Rafael Kubelík and Milada Šubrtová to the Prague Symphony Orchestra and the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava.

Years ending with the number 4 have been traditionally recognised as years of music since 1924.

The Year of Czech Music 2014 programme has been initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Ministry for Regional Development with the objective to support projects promoting Czech music in the Czech Republic and abroad.
