Matouš, Kristina and Jan played together for some time in various chamber music ensembles before founding Trio Bohémo in 2019. Shortly afterwards they were awarded 2nd prize at the Gianni Bergamo Award in Lugano. As a result they were invited to join Le Dimore del Quartetto network. They are currently studying under the guidance of Mezö Péter.
Since 2020 Trio Bohémo has been part of the European Chamber Music Academy, studying with professors such as Hatto Beyerle, Patrick Jüdt, Johannes Meissl, Avedis Kouyoumdjian and Dirk Mommertz. The opportunities provided by the European Chamber Music Academy have enabled them to perform on multiple stages across Europe.
At the ISA Festival in Austria In summer 2021, they were awarded special prizes for the Best Interpretation of Viennese Classicism, Czech Contemporary Chamber Music and a work by Bohuslav Martinů. Shortly afterwards, they won the first edition of the International Filippo Nicosia Award in Italy and in September 2021 they were awarded first prize and audience prize at the International Johannes Brahms Competition in Austria.
The highlights of the 2021/2022 season include their debut in the Musikverein in Vienna and recitals at festivals such as Lago Maggiore Musica in Italy, Gent Festival van Vlaanderen in Belgium, Schwarzwald Musikfestival in Germany and the Prague Spring Festival in the Czech Republic. They recently spent two weeks as part of the 2022 Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme where they received coaching from Robert Cohen.
