Karel Fleischlinger

Karel Fleischlinger studied guitar with Stanislav Juřica at the Conservatory in Pardubice, and graduated from the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt (Weimar) under the guidance of prof. Roland Zimmer. In 1986 he won the first prize and the title of laureate in the international competition in Kutná Hora in the category under 35 years old. In the same year he also won the first prize in the competition on the interpretation of contemporary Czech music.

In addition to numerous concerts at home and abroad, he has performed in a series radio recordings. Since 1991 he has also dedicated himself to chamber music in Lenz–Trio consisting of flute (Susanne Oehler), violoncello (Torsten Oehler) and guitar; from 2004 in PF Guitar Quartet; and from 2007 in Romantic Guitar Duo with Jan Tuláček.

In 1999, he recorded his first solo CD in the Principium studio (Prague), in 2001 a CD with Lenz–Trio, and in 2009 in the SURF studio a DVD/CD with PF Guitar Quartet. In the summer 2010 he recorded on a replica of an eight-stringed guitar (Ries, 1840) the CD Souvenir Romantique with music by the guitar masters of the 19th century.
