World-renowned oboist Vilém Veverka goes crossover
The name Vilém Veverka is familiar to everyone who has fallen for the enchanting tone of the oboe. His path to virtuosity commenced with accolades at international competitions, and continued with gaining experience with the Berliner Philharmoniker, performances with the chamber formations Ensemble Berlin Prag and PhilHarmonia Octet. Following several "classical" summits (critically acclaimed recordings of works by Telemann, Britten, Vivaldi, Zelenka and Bach), Vilém Veverka has made another of his dreams come true. The result is the crossover album Next Horizon he made with his Ultimate W Band. The album features pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ennio Morricone, Ástor Piazzolla, Led Zeppelin, as well as Marián Varga, Zdeněk Merta, Miroslav Žbirka and Martin Hybler. The guests Vilém Veverka invited to participate in the new album include the violin virtuoso Pavel Šporcl.
