Together with the Czech opera ensemble, this permanent symphonic orchestra is the most significant musical activity in Ostrava after the World War I. In 1929, it was founded as a radio ensemble, thus becoming an important part of the Czechoslovakian musical scene. For major period scores (Bartók, Schönberg) it was joined by the opera orchestra, often also in case of guest appearances of significant conductors and composers, such as Igor F. Stravinsky, Sergei S. Prokofiev, and also Paul Hindemith, who grew fond of Ostrava and visited repeatedly. It was in 1954, however, when the current ensemble was really founded, when Ostrava Symphony Orchestra was established and led by Otakar Pařík. Since 1962, it performed as Státní filharmonie Ostrava (led by Václav Jiráček), and in 1971, led by a longtime chief conductor Otakar Trhlík, its name was changed to the current form Janáčkova filharmonie Ostrava (Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava). During the whole of its existence Janáčkova filharmonie Ostrava was often invited to tours abroad, besides other countries in Europe mainly to the USA, Japan, China, Australia or South Korea. více
