King of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor, who was a generous patron of the orchestra while also being a praiseworthy composer himself. The Orchestra was restablished after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. Today, the Royal Czech Orschestra features the most highly acclaimed professional musicians to be found in the Czech Republic.
