Chamber Ensemble Variation Prague

The Chamber Ensemble Variations performs with the forces of a string quartet and also with less usual instrumental combinations. Since its founding in 1997, it has been giving concerts in the Czech Republic and abroad (Switzerland, Germany, Poland).

It has made repeated appearances on the chamber music series of the Czech Chamber Music Society and in the concert series “Tones of Architecture”. The first recording made by the Chamber Ensemble Variations, “Literature in Music”, won an award as the “CD of the Month of May 1999” in the French journal “Répertoire”.
