The Pop-Classic Ensemble Silverflutes (Silberflöten) were founded in 1985 and then consequently developed into a professional orchestra. Their repertoire consists exclusively of works from the pen of its founder Jan Hrábek (1945–2003) and the current conductor Alexius Tschallener in the pop-classical style full of very listenable melodies, touched with contemporary sounds and feelings. Their concerts include impressive video-and light-effects to create an atmosphere of pure emotion.
Also, the symbiosis of the classical voice of the flutes together with the oboe, solo piano and strings, subtly complemented with modern rhythm and contemporary sound elements, give rise to an original and unique sound experience. According to the occasion and the venue, the size of the ensemble can be varied from a quintet up to a full orchestra. The young, attractive soloists also excel with their expert virtuosity, their expressive interpretations and not least, their positive radiance.
