The Sonata art agency was founded in 1998. From the very beginning, it has focused on promotional activities in the area of classical music. It boasts collaboration with first-class artists and ensembles, coming mainly from the Czech Republic.
Since the time of its founding, Sonata has organised hundreds of concerts taking place predominantly in Europe and Japan. Throughout the years the agency has made its name in promoting symphonic and chamber orchestras, chamber ensembles and also ensembles focusing on historically informed performance of early music spanning from the Middle Ages to the classical period, with special emphasis on medieval chant and baroque music.
Not only do we promote some of the finest musicians in the classical music arena, but we also pride ourselves in our ability to meet the demands of our business partners through flexibility. This is why we have organised a number of concerts and projects which go beyond our basic offer presented as a list of artists. These have included opera and operette projects as well as asides into jazz or world music. We intend to retain this flexibility in our future projects.
