Czech Philharmonic Brass (Brass Ensemble)

Founded: 1973 - Prague, Czechoslovakia

The Czech Philharmonic Brass has been at the pinnacle of the Czech cultural tradition of brass performance for several decades. This virtuoso brass ensemble was formed in 1973 at the initiative of Miroslav Kejmar, principle trumpet with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in Prague for over 30 years, and comprises Kejmar and five other master musicians of the orchestra’s brass section. As fans of classical music have long known, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra has evolved, since its debut performance under the baton of Antonín Dvorák in 1896, into one of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, delighting global audiences with its unique sound characterized by the virtuosity of its brass section.

From April 10 through 27, 2012, this brass sextet, commonly known simply as Czech Phil Brass, toured 15 cities across Japan at the first-time invitation of the Min-On Concert Association. The ensemble has six members: Miroslav Kejmar (flugelhorn and trumpet), Marek Vajo (trumpet), Stanislav Suchanek (French horn), Jiri Novotny (trombone), Karel Kucera (bass trombone), and Karel Malimanek (tuba). All are eminent brass instrumentalists and virtuoso soloists.

The ensemble programmes comprise a variety of pieces in styles ranging from classical to tango, as well as jazz and world music.
