Kristina Vocetková, cello
Trio Bohémo was founded in 2019. The members of the ensemble are Jan Vojtek, piano, Matouš Pěruška, violin, and Kristina Vocetková, cello. Although all the members are from the Czech Republic, they only met in Budapest, Hungary, and shortly thereafter decided to form a trio together. Within months of their founding, they won 2nd prize at the prestigious Gianni Bergamo Prize in Lugano, Switzerland.
Following this success, the trio was selected to become part of the Le Dimore del Quartetto network. In the summer of 2021, they received special prizes for the best interpretation of the work of Viennese classicism, contemporary Czech chamber music and the work of Bohuslav Martinů at the ISA Festival in Austria. In September 2021, the trio won first prize and the audience prize at the International Johannes Brahms Competition in Austria, and in October 2021 they received the International Parkhouse Prize in London, UK.
They have also been invited for the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme in 2022. Since 2020, they are members of the European Chamber Music Academy, studying under Maestros such as Hatto Beyerle, Patrick Jüdt, Johannes Meissl, Avedis Kouyoumdjian or Dirk Mommertz. In the 2021/2022 season, the trio will debut at the Musikverein in Vienna and at several prestigious festivals such as the Lago Maggiore Musica Festival in Italy, Gent Festival van Vlaanderen in Belgium, Schwarzwald Musikfestival in Germany and the Prague Spring Festival in the Czech Republic. During the first lockdown in spring 2020, they organized two very successful benefit concerts (for hospitals in Italy and for Caritas in the Czech Republic). During the second lockdown in Fall 2020, they performed an online concert series and recorded the Christmas concert for nursing homes throughout the Czech Republic.
Le Dimore del Quartetto
Le Dimore del Quartetto (go to website to learn more +)is a creative cultural enterprise that supports young international string quartets and chamber music ensembles in launching their careers and enhances European cultural heritage, in a circular economy.
Born in 2015 from an idea of Francesca Moncada, Le Dimore del Quartetto develops from a simple exchange: on the eve of an artistic engagement, musicians are hosted free of charge in a mansion for up to a week and, in return, they offer a concert to the owners during their residency period. In this circular economy, the residences become a precious resource for the quartets and vice versa: opportunities to meet in unusual places and often decentralized territories are created, bringing back to life spaces that are not fully used and bringing a new audience to chamber music.
Today, Le Dimore del Quartetto, counts the participation of 91 chamber music ensembles (string quartets and trios, and with piano) with musicians from 41 different countries, 280 historical residences in 17 countries.
With a consolidated network in the field of music and cultural heritage, it deals with projects through the organization of festivals and travel itineraries, masterclasses, master classes and training courses for musicians, educational projects for associations, schools and universities, training and team-building activities for companies, residencies and concerts in historic houses and other places of cultural interest.
