Josef Špaček

Josef Špaček is a violinist who conquers audiences from all over the world with his playing and is one of the most significant talents of his generation. His playing excels in technical certainty, virtuosity, distinctive expression and a wide range of sound colors. He is also recognized for his confident and focused demeanor.
His greatest achievements include winning the Michael Hill competition in New Zealand (2009) and participating in the finals of the Queen Elizabeth competition, where he fought his way through as the first Czech violinist (2012).
Josef Špaček has collaborated with many top conductors, including Jiří Bělohlávek, Jakub Hrůša, Semjon Byčkov, James Conlon, Valerij Gergiev, Manfred Honeck, Tomáš Netopil, Michael Sanderling, Thomas Søndergård and Corneli Meister. His portfolio of orchestras has performed with all the world's most important orchestras.
He studied at the Prague Conservatory with Professor Jaroslav Foltýn, then at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, USA under Ida Kavafian and Jaime Laredo. He completed his violin studies at the Juilliard School in New York with the famous Itzhak Perlman.
At the age of 24, he became the youngest concertmaster of the Czech Philharmonic in history and remained in this position for nine seasons until 2020.
Josef Špaček plays the violin “LeBrun; Bouthillard ”Guarneri del Gesù approx. 1732 borrowed from Ingles & Hayday.

Leoš Čepický

He graduated from the Conservatory in Pardubice and the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. Of the many international competitions, let us mention at least the successes in Zagreb or Gorizia, Italy. He often performs both in solo recitals and in concerts with the orchestra at home and abroad. In 2000, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of J. S. Bach's death, he presented a complete performance of Sonatas and Partit for solo violin at the Smetana's Litomyšl festival, and two years later a recording was made for Multisonic. Since 2007 he has been teaching violin at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and in September 2010 he was appointed head of the string department of HAMU. Already during his studies he became the headmaster of the Wihan Quartet, of which he is still a member. With the Wihan Quartet, he won first prize at the Prague Spring 1988 and first place at the International String Quartet Competition in London in 1991. In 2008-2009, the Wihan Quartet performed all 16 Ludwig van Beethoven Quartets. Leoš Čepický plays the violin from the workshop of the master violinist Jan B. Špidlen, a copy of Guarneri del Gesù 1741.
