studied and works not only in the Czech Republic, but also

in Italy and Switzerland.

His first very important mentor in instrument building and restoration was the excellent Czech violinist Jaromír Joo in Náchod.

In 1996, he opened his own studio in Prague. His instruments are played by musicians from many European countries, soloists

and leading players of the Czech Philharmonic, Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, Prague Chamber Philharmonic, Bohuslav Martinů Zlín Philharmonic, National Theater Orchestra, etc.

Thanks to more than twenty years of work in his beloved Italy, he established many professional and friendly relationships in particular

in Modena, Rome, Florence, Naples, but also in Sicily. His instruments literally sound all over Italy.

He also restores rare instruments.

For the Claude Lebet atelier, where he grew up professionally, he restored instruments not only from the collection, e.g. A. Stradivari – Milanollo 1728, Andrea Amati – Il Portoghese approx. 1567


or client instruments such as Vadim Repin (G. Guarneri del Gesù – Von Sherdahely 1736),

Julian Rachlin (G. Guarneri del Gesù – Ex Carrodus 1741) and many other musicians from around the world. And, of course, students of conservatories and academies, looking for quality instruments for their studies and future professional career.

For the atelier Claude Lebet, he was largely involved in the commission for the orchestra of the National Opera And Ballet Tbilisi

in Georgia, who ordered the construction of the complete string section of the orchestra, i.e. 46 instruments.

However, he also devotes himself to young and beginning musicians. A well-sounding and well-tuned instrument can decisively influence their relationship to music.

He is an honorary member of the Circle of Violin Artists in Prague

and chairman of the Society of Věnceslav Metelka zs., which organizes the Prague International Violin Competition in the Czech Republic

He himself is the holder of several awards from international competitions.

The circle of violinists (KUH) unites professional violinists, string players and restorers of stringed musical instruments.

Membership presupposes high-quality artistic violin work and professional level, which are core values,

which shape the prestige of the Circle. It is not the goal of KUH to unite as many violinists as possible, but only the best. Membership in KUH

it is a certain distinction and appreciation of the violinist's qualities and is his good business card in public.
