Markéta Čechová

Marketa studied piano in Vienna, both at the Konservatorium der Stadt Wien and at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien. She later continued her studies in early keyboard instruments (harpsichord, clavichord, organ and fortepiano) at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (Prof. G. Lukšajté-Mrázková) and at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg (Prof. Menno van Delft). She has also developed her performance skills through participation in masterclasses with J. van Immerseel, F. Lengellé, Bob van Asperen, G. Leonhardt, J. Christensen and J. Ogg, among others.

She is currently a teacher and accompanist at the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory in Prague. A versatile accompanist, she is frequently invited as a guest accompanist to early music courses such as the International Summer School of Early Music in Valtice and the Académie de Sablé à Prague. She is the winner of several awards including an award for outstanding accompaniment at the Czech Conservatories Competition.

She regularly appears in concert both in the Czech Republic and further afield, as a soloist, chamber musician and continuo player, in the context of a wide variety of vocal and instrumental projects. She collaborates frequently with ensembles such as Hipocondria ensemble, Collegium Marianum, and Ensemble Fiorello.
