Jan Fišer is one of the most impressive young Czech violinists. He has been notably successful at international competitions and has collaborated with a number of leading orchestras and chamber music performers at home and abroad. Since 2004 he has been the concertmaster of the Prague Philharmonia, and since 2020 he has held the same position with the Czech Philharmonic. With the pianist Ivo Kahánek and the cellist Tomáš Jamník he belongs to the Dvořák Trio, which enjoys success on concert stages both in the Czech Republic and abroad. Jan Fišer also teaches—he is one of the mentors of the MenART Scholarship Academy, and he gives instruction regularly at music courses including the Ševčík Academy in Horažďovice and at the Music Academy in Telč. He is a graduate of the Prague Conservatoire, where he studied violin under Jaroslav Foltýn, and in 2003 he completed his studies at Carnegie Mellon University under Andrés J. Cárdenes. Thereafter he took part in masterclasses with Stephen B. Shipps, Pinchas Zukerman, Gil Shaham, and Joseph Silverstein. He plays a French violin from the early 19th century attributed to Francois-Louis Pique, which has been lent to him through the generosity of the Fidula Foundation.
