About The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra was founded by producer James Fitzpatrick following the Velvet Revolution, which left many Czech musicians searching for new work. ∙ Its roots can be traced back to the Film Symphony Orchestra, a world-renowned ensemble responsible for the Emmy Award-winning music for the miniseries The Bourne Identity. ∙ The orchestra worked with David Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti on music for the movies Mulholland Dr. and Lost Highway. ∙ In 2006, they recorded Javier Navarrete’s Oscar-nominated score for Pan’s Labyrinth, which was featured in full on the film's soundtrack at the request of director Guillermo del Toro. ∙ The orchestra performed the underscore of Oscar-winning German film The Lives of Others. ∙ They are one of the world’s most prolific ensembles, having accumulated hundreds of credits across film, TV, and and video games. ∙ They have collaborated with such composers and musicians as Nick Cave, Philip Glass, and Jóhann Jóhannsson.
