Emil Viklický Trio

“One of the best contemporary pianists, Emil Viklicky´s soloing and comping, his touch, voicings and intervals have a good deal in common with fleet, tasteful pianists like Tommy Flanagan, Jimmy Rowles and Bill Charlap.” – Jazz Times


Emil Viklický – piano

Jazz pianist-composer Emil Viklický often performs in international ensembles with musicians from the United States and Europe. As a composer, Viklický has attracted attention abroad primarily for having created a synthesis of the expressive elements of modern jazz with the melodicism and tonalities of Moravian folk song that is distinctly individual in contemporary jazz. Viklický’s work has garnered a number of prestigious awards, including first prize for the opera, “Phaedra,” in the 2000 International Composition Competition in Prague.
