Lukáš Klánský exerts his headstrong character both as a pianist and as a conductor. Born during the fall of Communism, he is also strongly influenced by the musical roots of his family. He is prized for his fresh interpretations and profound insights into the essence of compositions.


Having gained recognition at many international competitions and with successful performances at festivals both at home and throughout Europe, he is in much demand as a soloist and chamber player. As a member of the Lobkowicz Trio, he won First Prize at the Johannes Brahms International Competition in Portschach, Austria, in 2014.

Lukáš was born in Prague in 1989. From the age of five he studied under Prof. Růžena Učňová at the Music School of the Capital City of Prague. He attended the class of Prof. Eva Boguniová at the Prague Conservatoire. After completing his master’s degree in the class of his father, Prof. Ivan Klánský, at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, he is currently undertaking a doctoral course at the same university. Lukáš is a laureate of many international contests (EPTA 2002, Agropolli 2003, Karl Drechsel Förderpreis 2007, Beethoven’s Hradec 2007, International Rotary Piano Competition 2012, Darmstadt Chopin International Wettbewerb 2013).

He performs with leading Czech orchestras (the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Pardubice, the Hradec Králové Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra in Zlín, the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Barocco sempre giovanne) and conductors the likes of Libor Pešek, Andreas Sebastian Weiser, Jan Kučera, Gundi A. Emilsson, or Istvan Denes. He has toured the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Croatia, Slovenia, Poland, Turkey, and the South African Republic. Czech audiences know him from festival performances at the Prague Spring, the Dvořák Prague, World Piano Music, Václav Hudeček and His Guests, the Talich Beroun, or via concerts of the Czech Chamber Music Society.

He is a member of the much-lauded Lobkowicz Trio (Jan Mráček – violin, Ivan Vokáč – cello). He regularly takes to the stage with eminent Czech musicians, such as Václav Hudeček, Jana Boušková, Kateřina Javůrková, or the Pražák Quartet. 

Lukáš Klánský also studied conducting and choral music. He teaches at the Pilsen Conservatoire and at the Grammar and Music School of the Capital City of Prague.
