Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra

The Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1926 at the inception of Czech Radio broadcasting. During the communist occupation of Czechoslovakia, the orchestra retained its noted place among prominent European radio orchestras. Today, the orchestra flourishes and is respected as one of the pre-eminent and most recorded radio orchestras in Europe. Throughout its history, the orchestra has boasted an extraordinary roster of conductors including Charles Munch, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Sir Charles Mackerras and Vaclav Neumann. Venerable composers such as Honegger, Khachaturian and Penderecki have also led the CRSO. Following World War II, the orchestra enjoyed significant artistic growth under the leadership of Karol Ancerl, Alois Klima and Jaroslav Krombholc. Vladimir Válek was appointed to the post of Chief Conductor in 1985 and has led the orchestra to new artistic heights and wider recognition as one of Europe’s finest radio orchestras. Unlike many of his compatriots emerging in the new order of a post-Cold War Europe, Válek has remained at the helm of his orchestra rather than accepting the lure of western posts. Under his leadership the CRSO has performed throughout the world with celebrated tours to Germany, Italy, France, Greece, Korea and Japan.
