WHO WE ARE

Prague Music Performance Institute & Festival was founded by Czech pianist Jan Bartoš and Zenon Fishbein /Manhattan School of Music in New York/ in 2010. The project organically combines a festival with an educational institution. PMP thematically connects concerts, master classes, workshops, lectures, and residencies. The projects primarily focus on classical music, jazz, and experimental music. However, PMP also endeavors to include other fields of art such as the fine arts, film, or literary art. The list of renowned artists PMP has introduced throughout its history includes Alfred Brendel, John Zorn, Brad Mehldau, Murray Perahia, Ivan Moravec, Leon Fleisher, Phantasm, Quatuor Diotima, Miroslav Srnka, Garth Knox, Esperanza Spalding, Marc Ribot, John Medeski, Thurston Moore, Adrian Belew, Einsturzende Neubauten, Pere Ubu, The King Crimson ProjeKCt, Floex, and many others. PMP is supported by the Czech Ministry of Culture, the State Fund of Culture, the Capital City of Prague, and Pamela Stacy Fund.

Einstürzende Neubauten

 

Bravo for the Prague Music Performance! A wonderful idea in an incomparable city.

Leon Fleisher

 

Today there are thousands of festivals, and it is difficult to excel from the lot. Prague Music Performance is one of very few of them! Jan Bartos and his team are so committed that it is guaranteed for the future of this undertaking. Besides master classes by world-renowned musicians, they organize student concerts, and it helps young musicians to let themselves known to the public. I think that the Czech Republic can be very proud of this organization!

Tamás Vásáry

Prague Music Performance is constantly involved in all sorts of activities on a high professional level. In addition to being beneficial at the very physical of its activities, their wide-ranging effects make them beneficial for the entire cultural life in Prague. Over the period of several years of its existence, PMP has proved its professional as well as art qualities and the benefits of its projects. The committee positively assesses also the educational level which is embedded in the activity of PMP. We recommend significant support for this highly conceptual and successful project.
