Petr was born in the Czech Republic as a farmer’s son. He grew up playing the accordion and piano until he finally found “his” instrument – The Glass Harp, which he has been playing for over fifteen years. Over the years he has developed his own technique of playing this instrument and his playing has not been beaten by anyone in the World. The Glass Harp consists of thirty three wine glasses, filled and tuned with water. He has recently appeared on The One Show and The Jonathan Ross Show.
The spherical sound of his music is bewitching, sounds like it is from outer space and is unbelievably made. When Petr is playing you can feel an incomprehensible and mysterious, almost unreal atmosphere and his music leaves the astonished audience speechless.
Petr is known worldwide, not only through the Skoda Superb Spot but also because of his TV appearances. Events all over the world are evidence quite enough, for clients in Amsterdam, Sydney, Moscow, Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava, just to name a few. Even the film industry has already discovered his talent, and has Petr has recently been involved in the music of two European feature films.
Petr will need a minimum space of 2 x 2 metres. His instrument includes a table mount, so the client will not need to provide a table. Petr will need a PA for larger venues, which the client will need to provide.
