Lubomír Malý
is one of the best viola players of our time. He reached the peak of viola skills while still a student, which found confirmation in the first prize at the International Competition in Helsinki. His vast repertoire contains fundamental works written for the instrument, incl. a number of concertos for viola and orchestra. 

As soloist, he has performed in most European countries, the USA and Japan, and taken part in international music festivals in Prague, Santander, Passau, Divonne, Dubrovnik, Vienna, Athens, Wartburg or Milan. 

In his native country, he plays with top orchestras, such as the Czech Philharmonic. He also performs as guest soloist with prominent European ensembles, incl. Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Tonkünstler Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Zagreb Radio and Television Orchestra, Gothenburg Philharmonic, Nagoya Philharmonic, Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, or Bern Symphony Orchestra. He has held master classes in Finland, Japan, England and the United States. 

Collaboration with Czech and international radio stations and record companies, such as Supraphon, Panton, EMI and Multisonic, is of great significance for the development of his career. All his thirty-eight records have been widely acclaimed by national and international press. His extensive, 45-year-long concert activity has been marked with numerous important national and international prizes and awards.
