Jakub Hrůša has posted news of the death of his conducting teacher, Professor Radomil Eliška.

A provincial music director in Karlovy Vary for 30 years, Eliška landed a teaching post in 1978 at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague where, for the rest of his life, he trained two talented generations of conductors.



  • Antoine Bares says:

    May R Eliska rest in peace. His student Hrusa does him honour.

  • takis says:

    Eliska had great reputation in Japan. I had cd’s of Dvorak , Janacek, Smetana with Sapporo symphony and his interpretations are highly idiomatic, plenty of electricity and very good sound.
