Robert Heger

private lessons

Born in Prostějov, Czech Republic. He completed his studies at the Conservatory in Brno in the class of professor Božena Růžičková and then continued at Academy of Performing Arts in Prague in the class of associate professor František Čech.

He had been fascinated by symphonic music since his childhood, so he wanted to play the flute in a symphony orchestra, which came true very soon after his graduation. In 1987, Robert was accepted to the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra, where he still works today. He holds the position of the solo flutist.

He is also the principal flutist of the Czech National Symphony Orchestra where he has been playing since the founding of the ensemble in 1993.

As a soloist, he has successfully presented himself on home and foreign stages and has made several recordings (e.g., flute concerts by F. Benda, I. Pleyel, W. A. Mozart, J. Ibert, A. Honegger).

There is a rich list of chamber orchestras and ensembles with which he has collaborated: Bach Kammer Orchester zum Gewandhaus, Prague Chamber Orchestra, Suk Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, Czech Wind Quintet, Musica per cinque and Rameau Trio.

He is no stranger to genre diversity. For example, he took part in the recording of the music of Ennio Morricone for the film Eight Terrible, which was awarded an Oscar. As a flutist, he has performed in symphonic projects of stars such as Sting, Chick Corea, Andrea Bocelli, Serge Tankian, Lalo Schifrin, James Morrison, etc.
