The applause just went
on and on

Just 20 years old, this native of Hradec Králové has won a series of national and international competitions. Pianist Matyáš Novák’s latest triumph occurred in September 2018 when, amid tough international competition, he came second at the International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition in Bergen, Norway.

His recent appearance at the Pardubice Music Spring festival was extremely well received. “Matyáš Novák made his mark as a consummate performer of Bach’s Piano Concerto in D minor, and his delicate touch was superbly suited to the Baroque masterpiece,” wrote a reviewer on the Opera Plus website, adding: “The applause just went on and on.”

Fryderyk Chopin and Franz Liszt are among the pianist’s favourites, thus his decision to select them for his Prague Spring debut.

Matyáš is likewise a sought-after chamber player, but he’s also an expert on railway transport and loves travelling by train, he’s an avid hen breeder and he likes to bake in his spare time.
