Pavel Šporcl, violinist

THE MOST DISTINCTIVE MEMBER of the young generation of Czech violinists, PAVEL ŠPORCL’s recordings have invariably shot up to top-selling positions, all receiving a Supraphon Gold and Platinum Record, and accolades from “Gramophone recommends”. Holder of various international prizes and distinctions, Pavel Šporcl has to his credit an impressive discography, has appeared on concert platforms around the world, and has been working continually with a rich gallery of Czech as well as international orchestras. He is the sole young Czech violinist listed in the book by the world-renowned critic and music historian Henry Roth, Violin Virtuosos: From Paganini to the 21st Century. His repertoire comprises 45 violin concertos, countless sonatas, chamber and virtuoso compositions. Warmly acclaimed by the public and critics alike, press reviews of the inaugural concert of the Czech Philharmonic’s 2001/2002 season under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy (Dvorak’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A minor), lauded Pavel Šporcl as“a talent that is born once in a century…”
