Veverka, Vilémfree

  • Ian Mikyska

(b Prague, 5 Feb 1978).Czech oboist. He studied at the Prague Conservatory with František Xaver Thuri, at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague with Liběna Séquardtová, and at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin with Dominik Wollenweber. His time in Germany was particularly fruitful thanks to two years in the Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchester, followed by a further two years as a Karajan scholar in the Berlin Philharmonic. He is a laureate of the 7th Competition of Tokyo by the Sony Music Foundation and of Concertino Praha.

As a soloist, he has worked with most of the major orchestras in the Czech Republic, as well as the Tokyo Philharmonic, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Bayerisches Kammerorchester, Münchener Kammerorchester, Kraków Philharmonic, and others. He is the solo oboist with the Brno Philharmonic and a founding member of the PhilHarmonia Octet and Ensemble Berlin-Prague.

In 2010 he founded the Isang Yun Trio (with Kateřina Engelchová on harp and Petr Nouzovský on cello), which is dedicated to performing the chamber music cataloge of the Korean composer (including several world premières), as well as other contemporary repertoire. Veverka is also a champion of contemporary Czech music, including premières of pieces by Pavel Zemek-Novák, marek kopelent, and Martin Hybler. He performs regularly as soloist at the Ostrava Days festival.
