Viktor Mazáček violin
He has interpreted contemporary music since his studies at the Prague Conservatory. At that time he performed works by his classmates and teachers (Trojan, Kurz, Petrov, Laburda, Domažlický…).
Later at the Academy of Performing Arts he acquainted with new techniques of composition and interpretation more thoroughly in Ivan Štraus´ class (Václav Kučera, Eduard Douša, Jiří Sad, Marek Kopelent, Jaroslav Fisherman, Petr Kotik, Ilja Hurník and others). He was discovering works by foreign authors of the early 20th century with Ondřej Melecký´s ensemble Classicon XX (e.g. compositions by Darius Milhaud).
Within the cycle of concerts of the Konvergence he introduced himself in a number of works by the composers of the association – Ondřej Štochl, Tomáš Pálka, Jan Rybář, Michaela Plachká and their frequent guests – Pavel Rinowský, Peter Graham and Pavel Zemek.
Thanks to the Konvergence he has had the opportunity to interpret pieces of the major foreign composers G. Crumb, K. Saariaho, S. Sciarrino, etc.
He cooperates not only with the Konvergence but also with the association ARTn (Roman Z. Novák) in projects of contemporary works.
Currently he is a violinist in the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra; he collaborates with various chamber orchestras (the Chamber Orchestra of the Dvořák Region, the Camerata Bohemica), he is a member of the Trojan trio and the Hecht ensemble. Since he is a big fan of authentic interpretation of early music, he regularly performs with the orchestra Capella Regia Praha (Robert Hugo).
