Speech is only one of the ways to conduct a dialogue. A musical instrument, a dance, or a brush allows for dialogue where words fail.


Dalibor Bzirský 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 violin maker Jaromír Joo in Náchod.


In 1996, he opened his own Atelier in Prague. His instruments are played by musicians from many European countries, soloists and leading players of the Czech Philharmonic, the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Prague Chamber Philharmonic, the Bohuslav Martinů Zlín Philharmonic, the National Theater Orchestra, etc.


Thanks to more than twenty years of work in his beloved Italy, he established many professional and friendly relationships, especially in Modena, Rome, Florence, Naples, but also in Sicily. His instruments literally sound all over Italy.

Dalibor Bzirský is also dedicated to the restoration of 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 ca 1567 or instruments of clients 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, which ordered the construction of the complete string section , 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.


Dalibor Bzirský is an honorary member of the Circle of  violinmakers in Prague and chairman of the Věnceslava Metelka  Society, which organizes international violin-making competitions in the Czech Republic.

He himself is the holder of several awards from international competitions
