The PhilHarmonia Octet was formed in 2007 by Vilém Veverka and Václav Vonášek with the aim to get together the best Czech instrumentalists of their generation and correlate the domestic performance tradition with modern European styles and trends.

The title combines two words: “philharmonic”, from the Greek and meaning “love of harmony”; and “Harmonie”, a German word designating an ensemble of wind instruments employed by aristocratic patrons, particularly during the Classical era.

The PhilHarmonia Octet is made up of superlative musicians, laureates of major international competitions, graduates of prestigious foreign schools, and members of renowned Czech and international orchestras (the Berliner Philharmoniker, WDR Köln, Czech Philharmonic, Prague Symphony Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic, etc.).

All of them have pursued careers as soloists. The PhilHarmonia Octet repertoire encompasses music of various epochs and styles, ranging from the second half of the 18th century to the beginning of the new millennium.

The ensemble has given performances at significant international festivals (De klenge Maarnicher Festival in Luxembourg, Mitte Europa, Lípa Musica, the Saint Wenceslas Music Festival in Ostrava, etc.).
