Petr Nouzovský


Petr Nouzovský, who is one of the best European cellists of his generation, can be heard on many prestigious stages (Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Bad Kissingen Festival Hall, Rachmaninov Hall in Moscow, Hercules Saal in Munich). His play is rated superlatively for its sovereign technical nobility, combining with the original musically tectonic construction of the compositions he interprets. During this season, Nouzovský will perform at many orchestral and recital concerts in Europe, North America and Asia. This season he has performed together with the Nagoya Philharmonic, the PKF-Prague Philharmonia, the Janáček Philharmonic in Ostrava, the Czech Philharmonic Choir in Brno and the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra. He is a regular guest of the Prague Spring, Leoš Janáček International Music Festival and Dvořák's Prague.

In 2021, Petr Nouzovský will have his first orchestral tour in South Korea, another tour in Japan and China, a concert at the Prague Spring International Music Festival with the Brno Czech Philharmonic Choir, or a performance of Dvořák's Cello Concerto in B minor at the Rudolfinum in Prague in collaboration with the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Petr Nouzovský collaborates with conductors Charles Olivieri-Munroe, Tomáš Brauner, Jakub Hrůša, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Petr Altrichter, Caspar Richter, Jan Schultsz, Andrew Parrott, Case Scaglioni, or James Jud.
