Lenka Matějáková violin

"... the entire symphony concert was characterized by its American style: although the English composer Benjamin Britten, whose 100th Birthday is being celebrated this year, only lived in the US between 1939 and 1942, he wrote a crucial but seldom heard work: his Violin Concerto Opus 15 has never established itself as concert repertoire. Born in the Czech Republic soloist Lenka Matejakova (class of Prof. Jörg Faßmann) did convincing work for Britten and thrilled the audience with a completely superior and intense interpretation. Where Britten's musical composition runs the risk of sounding too dry, Matejakova mastered the work with a free bow and much intensity, which was most apparent at the conclusion

of the third movement. Her courage deserved particular praise when she played the long G-string passages with full commitment and when she chose a hard but never inflexible

intonation of the percussive passages in the second movement. Klemm’s conducting quickly

adapted to the typical Britten sound in a mixture of clean harmonies and a refined rhythm.

(Dresdner Neuste Nachrichten 20.3.2013)

 

...“ The audience’s long standing ovation after the performance of works by Cesar Franck and Pablo Sarasate demonstrates her outstanding talent. The encore proved the success.

BIOGRAPHY

The young Czech soloist Lenka Matějáková, which is the one of

the most talented violinists of hers generation, took her first violin

lessons with Eva Bublová at the Prague Music School at the early

age of five and gave her orchestra debut at the age of seven. She

continued her studies at the Prague Conservatory where she was a

student of Pavel Kudelásek.

Starting in 2007 she was admitted to the University of Music and

Performing Arts Vienna to first study with Jela Spitková and from

2008 to 2012 with Jan Pospíchal. She completed her Master’s

degree with Jörg Faßmann and Wolfgang Hentrich (2014 to 2015)

at the Hochschule für Musik Carl-Maria von Weber in Dresden.

Lenka Matějáková won the international violin competition in Nová

Paka, Czech Republic, she was awarded 2nd prize at the

Stephanie–Hohl competition in Vienna, Austria in 2010, and

received the “Musikförderpreis eco” sponsored by BASF Schwarzheide (Dresden, Germany) in 2013. She was also awarded

scholarships from the Brücke/Most-Stiftung and the DAAD.

She completed her musical education by attending masterclasses

with Gabriela Demeterová, Pavel Šporcl, Semion Jarosevish (Tel

Aviv), Charles Avsharian (Meadowmount School of Musik, USA),

Regis Pasquier (Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique-

Paris), Alberto Lysy (student of Menuhin- Switzerland), Stephan

Schipps (University of Michigan, USA), Niklas Schmidt and Valentin

Erben (Mendelssohn Summer School-Hamburg, Germany) as well

as Václav Hudeček (Czech Republic).

A concert tour with acclaimed violinist Václav Hudeček took her to

large parts of the Czech Republic. As a soloist Ms. Matějáková has

appeared with distinguished Czech and German orchestras such as

the Prague Chamber Philharmonic, the Prague Symphony

Orchestra, the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, the Talich

Chamber Orchestra, Virtuosi Pragenses, the North Czech

Philharmonic, the Medicanti Orchestra Dresden, and the Leipzig

Symphony Orchestra.

As part of a university symphony concert series she performed

Britten’s violin concerto under the musical direction of conductor

and composer Ekkehard Klemm at the Semper Oper Dresden. As a

recitalist Lenka Matějáková performed an exciting repertoire across

 

 

 

Europe, including cities such as Paris, Madrid, Zagreb, Lisbon, and

Vienna, among others.

In 2009 she released a chamber music album with the Puella Trio

(ArcoDiva) which was praised „Recording of the Month“ (Musicweb

International London) as well as „IRR Outstanding“ (International

Record Review).

From 2012-2013 Ms. Matějáková was a member of the Giuseppe

Sinopoli Academy at the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden and

was offered a one year contract to become deputy first

concertmaster with the Dresden Philharmonic in 2016. A committed

chamber musician, Ms. Matějáková co-founded the „Ensemble

International.“ ( Members of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden)

Bringing her own unique sensibility to performances, her

engagements continue to highlight her demand as orchestral

soloist, recitalist, and chamber music collaborator.
