Alice Rajnohová


Alice Rajnohová studied at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno under the tutelage of Zdeněk Hnát. She spent a year at the C.N.R. de Rueil-Malmaison in Paris, attending the class of Bernard Ringeissen and receiving the Médaille d’or and Prix d’Excellence for concurrent completion of two classes. While still a student, she garnered a number of accolades at national and international competitions, and her name was included in the Czech Music Fund’s Premium List of Young Artists. She has given solo concerts, and performed with chamber ensembles and orchestras. Over the long term, she has worked with the Brno-based Ensemble Opera Diversa, a string orchestra focused on 20th- and 21st-century music, with whom in 2015 she made the premiere CD recording of Jan Novák’s Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra. Alice Rajnohová has made numerous recordings for Czech Radio in Brno, mainly featuring works by 20th-century Czech composers. From 2005 to 2014, she taught at the Brno Conservatory. At the present time, she teaches the piano at the Evangelical Academy Conservatory in Olomouc and, as a senior lecturer, at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno. Over the long term, she has devoted to Vítězslava Kaprálová’s music: in 2001 she participated as a performer in a TV documentary about the composer (The Last Concertino, directed by R. Chudoba, Czech Television in Brno); in 2009 she created the very first radio recording of Kaprálová’s Sonata appassionata, Op. 6; in 2011 she made the first CD recording of the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in D minor, Op. 7 (with the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Zlín, conducted by Tomáš Hanus); and in 2013 she concluded her doctoral studies focused on the composer’s complete piano works. In 2015, Alice Rajnohová and the Brno Philharmonic, conducted by Olga Machoňová-Pavlů, performed Kaprálová’s piano concerto at the Janáček Theatre at a concert marking the centenary of the composer’s birth. A year later, Radioservis, financially supported by The Kapralova Society, released a live recording of the concert.
