Chamber Music by one of the great composers of the 20th century performed by an extraordinary ensemble. Trio Martinu was formed at the Prague Conservatory in 1990. Its current lineup has remained unchanged since 1993. Under the guidance of Antonin Kohout at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, the ensemble developed and embarked on a trajectory paved with success and awards, including at the international competition at Trapani, Italy; the International contest of chamber ensembles at Heerlen, the Netherlands, in 1992 and 1995. From 1996, the ensemble studied for two years at the Vienna Hochschule fur Musik under Michael Schnitzler, a member of the Haydn Trio. In 1995 the ensemble received the annual Award of the Czech Chamber Music Society attached to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. All three members of the Trio Martinu are outstanding soloists and record regularly for the Czech Radio. Pavel Safarik and Jaroslav Matejka have been engaged in the Prague Symphony Orchestra as assistant leaders for many years, and Petr Jirikovsky, as well as his solo performances and conducting activities, teaches piano at the Prague Conservatory.
