Czech Wind Harmony

The Czech Wind Harmony was founded in 1994 by the principal oboist of the Czech Philharmonic Ivan Sequardt together with his colleagues from the Czech Philharmonic and the Prague Symphony Orchestra. This unique partnership of wind players is based on ensembles that were quite popular in the residences of the eighteenth-century upper class.

For this reason, the works of eighteenth-century composers, and especially works of Czech ancestry, dominate the ensemble’s repertoire. Besides compositions from printed editions, you will also find original, historical works here that have not yet been published, and also arrangements of compositions.

The artistic quality of the ensemble is appreciated not only by the Czech public, but also by audiences abroad. The ensemble engages in noteworthy long-term collaboration with the International Rosetti Society in Wallerstein, Germany, it has been invited regularly to festivals in Belgium and Croatia, and it is in ongoing collaboration with Czech Television.
