Petr Nouzovský, recognized as one of Europe’s eminent cellists of his generation, performs regularly on many international concert stages. He has garnered international acclaim for his deeply expressive musicianship and musical virtuosity, as well as for the gloriously sonorous tone of his 1921 Georg Rauer cello.
This present concert season, Petr Nouzovský will perform in numerous recitals and orchestral concerts throughout Europe, the U. S., and Asia. In Europe, he will appear with the Krakow Philharmonic, the Slovak Philharmonic, the Nagoya Philharmonic, the SWF Philharmonie, the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, and others. The previous seasons have seen his performances in Germany, China, Japan, New York, Estonia, or Poland.
The young cellist continues to collaborate regularly with prominent conductors, such as Jakub Hrůša, Charles Olivieri-Munroe, Petr Altrichter, Caspar Richter, Jan Schultsz, Leoš Svárovský, or Tomáš Brauner.
Petr Nouzovský has made recordings for Dabringhaus und Grimm, Brilliant Classics, CUBE, Albany, Supraphon, and Arco Diva. His CD ‘Vivat tango’ has been declared the 2014 CD of the Year by the New York Violoncello Foundation. His new recording of Bohuslav Martinů’s complete works for cello and orchestra, produced with the Pilsen Philharmonic under the baton of Tomáš Brauner (Dabringhaus und Grimm), has been awarded the 2018 Classic Prague Award; glowing reviews have appeared in the Frankfurter Allgemeine or the Pizzicato Luxembourg. The Pilsen Philharmonic has named Petr Nouzovský its ‘Soloist in Residence’ for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.
Petr Nouzovský is the first cellist in history to record complete work for Cello by Bohuslav Martinů (Dabringhaus und Grimm, Arco Diva)
From hundreds of applicants worldwide, Petr Nouzovský has been one of the only ten chosen to participate in the legendary Piatigorsky Seminars in Los Angeles; subsequently, he was invited to return for a second time, which is considered even more exceptional. He has attended master classes all over the world and studied with such legends of his instrument as Mstislav Rostropovich, Boris Pergamenschikow, Franz Helmerson, Lynn Harrell, or David Geringas.
