Cimbalom Ensemble of Czech Philharmonic

Cimbalom Ensemble of Czech Philharmonic

The Cimbalom Ensemble of the Czech Philharmonic has been in existence for nearly twenty years. It long operated as a pick-up group for friendly gatherings. The impetus for more intensive work was the Prague appearance by the famous singer Bobby McFerrin, who chose the Cimbalom Ensemble as a partner for his Dvořák Hall concert at the Rudolfinum.
