Lukáš Vendl

Graduated in organ playing from Jan Hora’s class at the Prague Conservatory, and in 2003 from Jaroslav Tůma’s class at the Academy of Performing Arts, Prague. He participated in a number of master classes led by important organists of world renown (such as Martin Sander, Harald Vogel, David Titterington) as well as harpsichordists (Helmut Franke). In 2002, he studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg with Wolfgang Zerer. His doctoral thesis deals with the 17th and 18th-century theory of music in relation to the keyboard instrument compositions. He received awards in several competitions in the Czech Republic and abroad (such as the Georg Muffat Orgel Wettbewerb 2002, Schlägl, Austria). He works as a Cantor of the Czechoslovak Evangelical Church and is the organist of the St. Salvator Church in Prague. (…)
