chamber choir was founded in 2010. While its main artistic focus has been on top-quality interpretation of chamber choral works encompassing the time span from the 19th–21st centuries, the choir´s repertoire also includes compositions from the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods. The ensemble is made up of professional singers working under the direction of conductor Lukáš Vasilek. The Martinů Voices appear regularly at the Czech Republic´s major music festivals including the Prague Spring, Dvořák Prague Festival, Strings of Autumn, Saint Wenceslas Music Festival, or Lípa Musica, among others. Apart from its own concert programmes which constitute the core of its creative endeavour, the choir has likewise been involved in a number of joint projects with this country´s orchestras and conductors. Martinů Voices have recorded seceral CD albums - the most recent was in 2016 - a recording of Jakub Jan Ryba´s cantata Stabat Mater (Nibiru Publishers) which earned them the Diapason d´Or choice (April 2017).
