The Karlovy Vary Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1835 by Josef Labicky as a seasonal spa orchestra, to be transformed forty years later by Labicky’s son, August, into a permanent symphony orchestra. It was this orchestra that gave the European première of Dvořák’s New World Symphony in 1894. From 1911 to 1941 it was directed by Robert Manzer and after 1945 by Josef Bartl. From 1991 to 1998 the English conductor Douglas Bostock was Chief Conductor, followed by Alois Ježek and now by Martin Lebel. The orchestra has a wide repertoire and a history of collaboration with leading soloists and visiting conductors.
