Roman Patočka

Called a “most talented violin virtuosoˮ, Roman Patočkaʼs colorful musicality and bravura technique make him a prominent figure among the young soloists of his generation. After completing his studies at the Prague Conservatory with Dagmar Zárubová and at Pragueʼs Academy of Performing Arts in the class of Ivan Štraus, Patočka continued his studies abroad: first in Utrecht, the Netherlands, with Keiko Wataya, and later in Lübeck, Germany, with Shmuel Ashkenasi. In 2009, he received his Masters from the Musikhochschule “Hanns Eislerˮ in Berlin as a student of Stefan Picard.

Patočka has worked with some of todayʼs most important musicians as a participant of the International Musical Academy in Montpellier, France; the Keshet Eilon Music Center festival in Israel; the Ravinia Festivalʼs Steans Institute in Chicago, USA; and the International Summer Academy in Semmering, Austria. He has studied chamber music and participated in masterclasses with Ida Haendel, Ruggiero Ricci, Gidon Kremer, Vadim Gluzman, Hagai Shaham, Daniel Barenboim and Menahem Pressler.

In 2003, he was awarded 2nd Prize with four Special Awards at the Prague Spring Competition. In 2007, Patočka earned 2nd Prize at the Max Rostal International Competition in Berlin and 3rd Prize at the International Pablo de Sarasate Violin Competition in Pamplona, Spain. In 2009, he was awarded 3rd Prize with 2 Special Award Prizes at the esteemed Leopold Mozart International Violin Competition in Augsburg, Germany.

Roman Patočka has performed as a soloist with orchestras in the Czech Republic and abroad- including the Münchner Rundfunkorchester, the Hamburger Symphoniker, the Konzerthouse Orchester Berlin, the Tiroler Symphonie Orchester Innsbruck, the Filharmonie Nagoya, La Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra, the Czech Radio Symphonic Orchestra, and the PKF – Prague Philharmonia under the baton of conductors Jiří Bělohlávek, Zdeněk Mácal, Vladimír Válek, Jakub Hrůša, Douglas Bostock, Yoko Matsuo, and Georg Fritzsch. In 2004, Patočka performed Leoš Janáčekʼs little-known concerto, The Wandering of a Little Soul with Sir Carles Mackerras and the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra. That same year, he had the distinct privilege of premiering Bohuslav Martinůʼs Czech Rhapsody for violin and orchestra with the Chamber Orchestra Berg.

As a chamber musician, Roman Patočka has performed with some of todayʼs most important Czech musicians-including Jiří Bárta, Radek Baborák, Martin Kasík, Adam Skoumal, Jana Boušková and Igor Ardašev – as well as internationally recognized musicians such as Daishin Kashimoto, Jennifer Frautschi, Lara St. John, Chloë Hanslip, Konstantin Lifschitz, José Gallardo, Maciej Pikulski and Roberto Giordano. He represented the Czech Republic at the international exhibition EXPO 2005 in Aichi, Japan and has performed chamber music around Europe at festivals such as Festival Pablo Casals, Les Musicales de lʼAbbaye dʼAuberive, Les Journées Romantiques du Vaisseau Fantôme in Paris and the Les Heures Romantiques au Pays de Monthodon in France; Lange Nacht der Musik in Vienna, Austria; the Shafran Festival at the Waldenburg castle in Germany; and the Prague Spring Festivals, among countless others. Patočka is a member of both the celebrated Talich Quartet and the Eben Trio.
