matl.jpg Conductor Lubomír Mátl was born 6th March 1941 in Brno. After organ and piano studies at the Brno conservatoire he studied choir conducting at the Janáček Academy of Music in Brno where he graduated in 1968. Soon after that he achieved excelent results with the Brno Academic Choir both at home and in many European countries (Italy, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Britain) and the U.S.A. From 1979 to 1981 he worked in Bratislava conducting the mixed choir at the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra.
In 1981, as a result of an open competition, he was appointed chief master of the Prague Philharmonic Choir a body performing with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. There he worked until 1992. In that period the choir sang under outstanding conductors such as Václav Neumann, Wolfgang Sawallish, Riccardo Muti, Giuseppe Sinipoli, Claudio Abbado, Sir Charles Mackerras and Leonard Bernstein. Since 1992 he has collaborated with various international Gramophone and recording companies (DGG, Fonicentro, as well as Czech Supraphon and Panton).
His work with the Moravian teacher's choir as their master began in 1975. Under his leadership the PSMU has been very successful in concerts as well as at international choral competitions (Llangolen in 1980, Gorizia, Italy in 1978). Mátl has strived to preserve the Choir's traditions whilst, at the same time introducing his own new and innovative views of the interpretation of choral repertoire.
