Parnas Ensemble (5 - 8 members)
is a chamber orchestra composed of members of Prague Symphony Orchestra and other top-level Czech ensembles and orchestras. For their brilliant art and virtuosity Parnas Ensemble won a well-deserved popularity.
The Parnas has been formed in 1990s' as the Parnas Quartet, followed by its larger line-up Parnas Ensemble in 2007, by members of the Prague Symphony Orchestra to fill a void in the Prague musical community for a high–calibre chamber group performing both light classical and ballroom dance music. Critics have stressed their brilliant art, their virtuosity and sense for a polished dramaturgy of individual performances.
Its versatile and extensive repertoire enables the Parnas Ensemble to offer classical and contemporary music for varied occasions. Since its premiere engagement, the group has been invited to perform at prestigious international congresses such as the NATO Prague Summit in 2002, at various social events, for dignitaries such as Václav Havel, as well as special occasions and concerts in the greater Prague area and abroad.
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 strives to satisfy not only the music critics but first, and foremost, its audience of listeners.
Please note there is no intermission.
