About me

My Instruments

Since 2005 I'm playing instruments made by outstanding Violin maker Mr. Miroslav Komár from Prague. His cellos have strong and colourful sound. It is a pleasure to play them especially in big halls, or solo performances with the orchestra accompaniment. In my three last CD solo recordings I used six different cellos. One of them is my old Italian instrument and five are made by Mr. Komár (2005-2009).  I'm glad to have the opportunity to recommend his cellos with my best conscience.
