In 1981-1986 he studied at the Prague Conservatory with J.Horacek and then privately with Terezie Blumova. He also participated in the masterclasses of Holger Eichhorn, Marius van Altena, Stephen Stubbs and others. Since 1986 he has been active in the field of early music in many ways.

In 1993 he founded his own ensemble Ritornello and since 1996 he has been leading the ensemble Prague Chamber Singers. An important part of his work is intensive research of original sources, reconstruction of old manuscripts and related editorial work (Sonatas of Kromeriz, Valerius Otto’s Dances, Michna’s Czech Lute, songs from Czech Hymnals). (…)
