The name “Wihan” is named after H. Wihan, the founder of the Bohemian String Quartet, a famous Czech orchestra. It was formed in 1985 while the members were students at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. Through continuous and steady efforts to this day, the band has built a reputation as an orchestra that inherits the traditions of its native Czech Republic, and has come to be described as “one of the best quartets in the world today” (International Record Review). In addition to classical and romantic repertoire, he also has a deep knowledge of contemporary works.
