Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno


The Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno (ČFSB) is a superb Czech chorus of international calibre, particularly lauded by critics for a compact sound and bringing to bear a wide scale of expression. Established in 1990, it has performed at all major festivals in Europe. With the bulk of its repertoire made up of oratorios, cantatas and operas, the choir gives more than 90 concerts a year in the Czech Republic and beyond. The ČFSB has worked with numerous world-class conductors, such as Christoph Eschenbach, Ivan Fischer, Zubin Mehta, Manfred Honeck, Marek Janowski, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Sir Simon Rattle and Michael Tilson Thomas, as well as the late legends Jiří Bělohlávek, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Charles Mackerras, Kurt Masur and Walter Weller.

The ČFSB has made a host of critically acclaimed recordings. The numerous prestigious accolades the choir has received include: Echo Klassik 2007 awards in the Ensemble of the Year (the album of Bruckner’s Motets) and Recording of the Year (Liszt’s oratorio Christus) categories; a nomination for the Danish P2 Music Prize 2008 in the Symphony Recording of the Year category (Paul von Klenau’s Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornetts Christoph Rilke); and the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 2009 (Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s Requiem für einen jungen Dichter). In 2011, the choir received the coveted Tokusen prize from Japan’s Geijutsu Disc Review for the live recording of Dvořák’s Requiem. The ČFSB also won the Classic Prague Award 2019 in the Vocal Performance of the Year category.
