Jan Bartoš is one of my most impressive and interesting younger colleagues. In him, virtuosity is coupled with deeply serious musicianship.

“In Jan Bartoš, virtuosity is coupled with deeply serious musicianship”, wrote the legendary pianist Alfred Brendel. Critica Classica described him as “an emotional and sophisticated interpreter”, while Il Roma referred to him as “one of the best European pianists”. His Supraphon debut album, featuring Mozart‘s Piano Concertos, recorded with Jiří Bělohlávek and the Czech Philharmonic, has earned international acclaim from critics and media (Gramophone, The Sunday Times, BBC Radio 3, Hifi & Recordings, Fanfare, etc.). The critics included the CD among the „Best of 2017“ on the server Seen and Heard International.

Jan Bartoš is a very rare type of a musician, a real personality.

Ivan Moravec

He has won numerous international competitions, including three in New York — the Mieczyslaw Munz and the Zaslavsky-Koch Competitions, and the Peter S. Reed Award — as well as the Rotary Musikförderpreis in Nuremberg and the Concertino Praga in the Czech Republic. Moreover, he has received prestigious accolades and scholarships from the Czech Ministry of Culture, the Rucorva Trust Award in the Netherlands and the Schimmel Prize in Germany.

Jan Bartoš has given concerts at prominent venues throughout Europe (the Rudolfinum in Prague, the Mozarthaus in Vienna, the Cartoixa de Valldemossa in Mallorca, the Villa Pignatelli in Naples, the Teatro Metropol in Tarragona, the Chopin House in Duszniki Zdrój), in Asia and the USA (Carnegie Hall, Juilliard School, Merkin Concert Hall, Rockefeller University in New York, Aronoff Center in Cincinnati, the Rousell Hall in New Orleans, etc.). as a soloist, he has performed with the Czech Philharmonic, the Prague Philharmonia, the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Manhattan Philharmonia, the Siam Sinfonietta, the Hradec Králové Philharmonic Orchestra, the South Bohemia Philharmonic and many others. He has collaborated with a number of renowned conductors, including Jiří Bělohlávek, Ondrej Lenárd, Kenneth Kiesler, Tomáš Hanus, Trisdee na Patalung and Andreas Sebastian Weiser.

Jan Bartoš is an extremely talented artist, who has already proven his qualities on numerous occasions.

Jiří Bělohlávek

Jan Bartoš was the last pupil of the legendary pianist Ivan Moravec. Following his studies in the Czech Republic, with Martin Ballý and Miroslav Langer, he continued to hone his artistry abroad, under the guidance of Zenon Fishbein and James Tocco, and he took private lessons from Leon Fleisher and Alfred Brendel. He has a doctorate from the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and a Professional Studies Certificate from the Manhattan School of Music. He also studied chamber music with Robert Mann (juilliard String Quartet) and Lawrence Dutton (Emerson String Quartet).
