History and Artist Biographies

A child prodigy on violin and piano, Miroslav Sekera won numerous competitions on both instruments, gaining the attention of Milos Forman who cast him as the child Mozart in the 1985 film Amadeus. Eventually, Mirek chose to concentrate on piano and in 1991 won first prize in the Chopin Competition at Mariánské Lázne. Other awards include first prize from the Prague Academy of Music and the Johannes Brahms International Competition at Portschach, Austria. Sekera has performed and recorded frequently with The Shakespeare Concerts, including both the debut season and recording: What A Piece Of Work Is Man. His recording of Scarlatti piano sonatas, the Brahms piano sonata in f minor, and two bravura Moszkowski works is available under the title Augury of Amadeus.



The Shakespeare Concerts features music set to the text of the world's pre-eminent dramatist and poet, William Shakespeare.
