For its brilliant art and virtuosity Parnas Ensemble won a well-deserved popularity. Its versatile and extensive repertoire enables the Parnas Ensemble to offer classical (Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Smetana, Dvořák, Beethoven etc.) and contemporary music for varied occasions.
Since 2007, the ensemble has recorded two CDs with the most popular classical tunes, performed many concerts, especially in Rudolfinum–the prestigious concert house in Prague, and toured Japan with a great success in 2012 as well as in 2014. The Parnas Ensemble aims to satisfy not only the music critics but first, and foremost, its audience of listeners.

The Liechtenstein Palace was built on the grounds of five city houses in 1591 and rebuilt in Classical style in 18th cenutry. The princely family of Lichtensteins gradually lost interest in the Palace and sold it to the Earl of Ledebour. Later on, the Palace housed many different institutions, until finally in 1980´s it was acquired by the Academy of Musical Arts.
It was beautifully reconstructed and adjusted for the purposes of the Academy. Nowadays, the Liechtenstein Palace is literally full of music! The Liechtenstein Palace is protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic.
Lovely intimate concert. We took our 10 and 15 year old and both of them thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Short enough they didn't get bored and long enough for ús adults to enjoy. Many thanks
The musicians were AMAZING! I can only assume they perform these pieces hundreds of times a year, yet they seemed to be genuinely having fun and appreciated the audience. The pieces played were fantastic choices for a string quintet. I would see this again without hesitation.
Excellents musiciens qui jouent avec beaucop d'émotion et une grande subtilité.
