Biography

 

Michal Nejtek studied piano (with Vera Vlkova) and composition (Vaclav Buzek) at the Conservatory of Teplice (from 1991 to 1997). He performed the Piano Concerto in F by G. Gershwin with The North Czech Philharmonic Teplice at his graduation concert. He continued his compositional studies with Svatopluk Havelka at the Music faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (1998 - 2003), and graduated with the chamber opera Dementia Preacox (the first performance took place at the Marathon of Contemporary Music Festival, Prague 2001). Since 1998 he has been teaching music theory, piano improvisation and composition at the Conservatory of Music in Teplice. In 2006 he became a lecturer on jazz history at the Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory and College. As a pianist, he was playing in various jazz groups in Prague (Four Roses, Lee Davison), and he is currently a leader of his own postminimalistic-rock band Why not patterns? (together with composer M. Pudlak). Since 1998 he has often performed with the AGON Orchestra, and he has intensively devoted himself to performing both Czech and world contemporary music as a soloist, or as a chamber musician. He is also a member of the Trio PUO (Michal Nejtek - piano, Petr Tichy - double-bass and Tomas Herian - drums) which was established in 2005 as a new musical project of Feng-yün Song (a female singer of Chinese origin living in Prague). Occasionally he writes reviews on CD with contemporary music for music magazine Harmonie.

While he was at the Academy, he participated in the International Courses of New Music in Darmstadt (performance of his composition Two girls in the Space with Objects, 2000), and his composition Music for 18 Strings was performed by chamber orchestra AUKSO Tychy at the Warsaw Autumn 2001. In the following year there was performed his Distress Sonata (New Music Orchestra Katowice) at the same festival. He was also successful with his chamber composition Thorn into the Flesh that was premièred at the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2002. The recording of the composition Ballo Nella Notte (premiered by the Chamber Orchestra Berg, cond. Peter Vrabel) was choiced in 2002 as a representative Czech radio recording for a International Rostrum of Composers at UNESCO in Paris. He likes to compare his composing and playing the piano with adventurous walking through a jungle, and that's why he loves it.
