In 1981-1986 he studied at Prague Conservatory in the class of J.Horacek and then privately with Terezie Blumova. He also took part in masterclasses of Holger Eichhorn, Marius van Altena, Stephen Stubbs et al.

Since 1986 he has been active in the field of early music in many ways.

In 1993 he founded his own ensemble Ritornello and since 1996 he has been leading the ensemble Prague Chamber Singers.

An important part of his work consists in the intensive research of original sources, in reconstructing the old manuscripts and in the related editorial work (Sonatas of Kromeriz, Valerius Otto’s Dances, Michna’s Czech Lute, songs from Czech Cantionales, etc.).

With Ritornello he focused on recording the neglected treasures of Czech baroque culture – songs. All CDs have been produced with the label Arta Records: “Loutna Ceska - Czech Lute” (1996), “Masopust juz nastal! – Carnival songs” (1998), “Jeslicky, stare nove pisnicky – Christmas Cradle songs” (2000), “Vzhuru na Ptaky – Hunting songs” (2001), „Missa Super...“ - Michna´s Christmas Mass circa 1650 (2003) etc....
