PRAGUE METROPOLITAN ORCHESTRA
The Prague Metropolitan Orchestra was established in 2005, primarily as an ensemble for recording classical, film and theatre music. The orchestra was formed by violin player Radek Křižanovský together with members of his Apollon Quartet.
The orchestra has been involved with many award-winning projects including the film Leviathan with music by Phillip Glass, which won Best Film at the London Film Festival. The orchestra also performed on the soundtrack of The Musketeers on BBC 3, in the major Czech film Milada and in a number of films by Polish director Jacek Bromski.
The orchestra gives concert performances in Prague, throughout the Czech Republic and abroad, and performs many premieres by contemporary composers, including Argentine composer Daniel Doura’s monumental Sinfonía Argentina, which was first recorded in 2015 and given its world premiere in 2018 at concerts in Prague, Teplice and Munich. In 2019 and 2020 the orchestra will be going on two tours in Asia, as well as taking part in recording and concert projects at home and abroad.
