  The Talich Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1992 by the violinist Jan Talich Jr., the great-nephew of the legendary Czech conductor Václav Talich. In recent years Jan Talich, as the orchestra’s artistic director, has been devoting a large part of his professional career to conducting the orchestra, whose members are graduates of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and winners of numerous prizes internationally and at home. The orchestra’s members show a level of professionalism under the distinctive direction of Jan Talich that guarantees the highest quality of musical interpretation. The orchestra has received strong acclaim from both Czech and foreign critics and artists. The TCO performs regularly at a number of music festivals, such as the Prague Spring and the Prague Autumn international music festivals, the Český Krumlov Chamber Music Festival, the Prague Music Festival, and the Music Festival Talich's Beroun, and it also plays concerts abroad (in Spain, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Croatia and Italy). The TCO records CDs for Czech and foreign music companies (including the French EMI Records). On the 250th anniversary of the birth of the W.A. Mozart they recorded a new CD with compositions for violin and orchestra. The violin solos are played by Jan Talich. For more details visit http://www.Talich.com
