Text in englischer Sprache verfügbarAlso known as the Czech Opera Orchestra, Virtuosi Bruneses (as spelled on their own website) or Virtuosi Brunensis (as spelled by the Naxos label and by several presenters), has made a series of recordings for Naxos featuring not only Rossini, something of a specialty, but also lesser-known composers of the early 19th century. The Virtuosi was the creation of violinist and conductor Karel Mitas, at the time concertmaster of the Janacek Opera Orchestra in Brno. It was formed in 2007, assembling musicians from several ensembles in Brno and adding first chairs and section leaders from other top orchestras in the Czech Republic. It offers a range of operatic and orchestral performances in its native country and was in residence at Germany's Rossini in Wildbad festival from 2008 to 2014. Also in Germany it received a Critics' Prize for its outdoor performances at the Oper an der Stiftsruine festival in Bad Hersfeld. Outside Central Europe, Virtuosi Bruneses may be best known for its recordings on Naxos, which have included less-often-performed Rossini works (Il Viaggio a Reims, Adelaide di Borgogna, Sigismondo, Bianca e Falliero, and Demetrio e Polibio), as well as even rarer works by Nicola Vaccai and Pietro Generali. The orchestra has toured China and as of 2017 was preparing another international tour that would include mainstream symphonic repertory. The orchestra has also performed historical-instrument Bach concerts under the name Musica Figuralis, conducted by Siegfried Heinrich.
