The Czech National Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1908, during which the orchestra performed its first concerts under the direction of Bohuslav Martinů. The orchestra is famous for performing the works of Dvorak, Smetana, Martinů, Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart and Schubert.

The orchestra also ranks among the authentic interpreters of the classics of Czech national music culture: Antonín Dvorák, Bedrich Smetana, Leoŝe Janáĉek a Bohuslav Martinů.

The Czech National Philharmonic Orchestra has had legendary composers and conductors including Gustav Mahler, Vítêzslava Kaprálová, Josef Suk, Václav Neumann, Karel Anĉerl, Herbert von Karajan, as well as Michael Gielen, Jean Martinen, Manfred Honeck, Elijahu inbal, and Bela Bartok, to name but a few of the international conductors who have collaborated with the orchestra.
