"Vojta moved around in this collection of virtuosic formidabilities like the proverbial fish in water. Stylistically he achieved such a perfect balance in this music..."
- Stuttgarter Zeitung
"...helping to fashion every orchestral phrase, every modulation, and is so perfect in attack and tone production; when he not only masters every detail but also has the ability to phrase expansively and is literally "long-winded..."
- Süddeutsche Zeitung
Přemysl Vojta, winner of the "International ARD Music Competition" 2010, tours worldwide as a soloist with orchestras such as the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Camerata Salzburg, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Prague Philharmonia and the Kanagawa Symphony Orchestra. After his successful debut at the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, Přemysl was awarded the prestigious Beethoven Ring, past recipients of which include artists such as Igor Levit, Lisa Batiashvili and Gustavo Dudamel. Přemysl Vojta has received much international acclaim for his exceptional album productions, including one complete recording of the horn concertos by Joseph and Michael Haydn, and his album "Metamorphosis", which was recorded using three different types of horns.
In October 2021, Přemysl Vojta was appointed as a professor of horn at Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen to succeed the horn legends Hermann Baumann and Frank Lloyd. In the past, he has also taught at Berlin University of the Arts and the Cologne University of Music and Dance.
At the age of 10, Přemysl Vojta received his first horn education from Olga Voldánová at the Brno Music School. A talented competitive swimmer at the time, Vojta had to choose between sports and music, but soon enough, his heart was set on the instrument. Later, he pursed his studies at the Prague Conservatory under the mentorship of Bedřich Tylšar (1998 -2004) and at Berlin University of the Arts under Christian – Friedrich Dallmann (2004 - 2010). While he was a student, Přemysl Vojta had already started his career as a principal hornist at the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra, and continues to hold the same position at the WDR Symphony Orchestra in Cologne since December, 2015.
Vojta is a member of the Carousel Ensemble, PhilHarmonia Octets, Breeze Quintets and Dispar Trios. His chamber music partners include Tobias Koch, Annelien van Wauwe, Fabrice Millischer, Oliver Triendl, the Pražák Quartet and the Armida Quartet.
Přemysl Vojta plays a Mod. 3 double horn from Klaus Fehr Horns, natural horns from Jungwirth and Curtois Paris and the F horn by Daniel Fuchs Vienna.
