DUO DU RÊVE
JANA JARKOVSKÁ – FLUTE & BOHUMÍR STEHLÍK – PIANO
from Prague, Czech Republic
We work together as a duo since 2011. Besides our duo concerts we have participated together in several master classes, such as Forum International pour Flute et Piano in Luxembourg or Sandviken Master Classes in Sweden.
Our interpretation was appreciated in various international competitions – Concorso Internazionale di Musica “Citta di Chieri”, Italy (2012) ~ 1st prize, Pro Musicis International Award in Paris (2013) ~ winner, “Salieri-Zinetti” International Chamber Music Competition, Italy (2014) ~ 3rd prize, Concorso Internazionale di Musica “Marco Fiorindo”, Italy (2014) ~ 3rd prize, ISA Open Awards (2015) ~ winner, Val Tidone International Chamber Music Competition, Italy (2016) ~ 1st prize, OnStage International Chamber Music Competition, Italy (2018) ~ 3rd prize.. We were included in the prestigious List of young artists of The Czech Music Fund for the season 2016/17.
With our art we try to bring to the audience the highest level of interpretation of classical music. However, we wish that it resonates not only in their ears but also in their hearts.
