Principal Clarinettist of Czech Philharmonic Orchestra

Multi-genre Musician, Saxophonist




“…Soloist Lukáš Dittrich commands an unusually smooth and pleasant tone throughout the entire range, including the highest positions, and his technical ability allows even the most complicated passages to sound completely non-violent. The listener may even have the impression that the composition is essentially light. Whether whether it was brilliant runs or long jumps, everything came out completely painless for him. But it is also necessary to mention the beautiful legato surfaces that stretched almost like honey. The orchestra accompanied the soloist with great humility and energy…”

Lutoslawski’s Dance Preludes) was very sophisticated, accurate in intonation and truly in-depth.”

“Completely original, funny and professional in all respects was the choreography of Tereza Szentpéteryová – Podle Tebe. In complete agreement, the dancer Zdeněk Mládek and the principal clarinetist of the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra Lukáš Dittrich performed on the stage. The experience of their performance was extraordinary. The young musician played memorized directly on stage pieces of G. Gershwin, C.M. von Weber, B. Smetana, P. Skoumal, Ch.

Zdeněk Mládek responded greatly to musical sequences, music to his movements – sometimes as if the dancer was directly controlled by the clarinetist and could not get out of the tones. This wonderful synchronization of both of them was also greatly stage directed, both men seemingly relaxed, immediately, in their world and yet with the audience…”
