The Consort

We are an ensemble which plays medieval and Renaissance music
It takes on the tradition of the original Rožmberk Consort, which was actually active between 1552 and 1602 at the castles of Český Krumlov and later on Třeboň in Southern Bohemia. There it added greatly to the luster of powerful aristocratic court of the brothers Vilém and Petr Vok of Rožmberk.

Everyone of us is musician by profession, who is active in significant ensembles in Prague
(Radio Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, State Opera Prague, Karlin Music Theatre). All of them are deeply interested in early music and skillful enough as to master various instruments, which was commonplace in Middle Ages.

We have been active for 40 years and we made several concert series around Europe
such as Greece, Sweden, Spain, Malta, Switzerland, Wales, etc. It performs also at distinguished festivals of early music, e.g. in Germany (Dresden, the Castle Wartburg, Berlin, Köln am Rein, etc.), Italy (Merano, Belluno, etc.), Austria (Vienna, Millstatt, Salzburg etc.), in Luxembourg, Belgium, France (Belfort), in Athens and other European cities.

The ensemble has made recordings for several radio stations, such as ORF, WRD, Deutschland Radio Berlin, Radio Nacional de Espaňa, Radio Greece, not to speak of several broadcasts with Czech Radio and Czech Television. It also performed music for several movies.
