David Eben

Well-known czech specialist on Gregorian chant and art director of the ensemble Schola Gregoriana Pragensis is going to visit Košice (Slovakia) and we can meet him on Theologic Faculty of Catholic University on October 15.

Quoting from the website of Schola gregoriana Pragensis:

D avid E ben (born on the 6th of January 1965 in Prague)
He is a founder and an art director of the Schola Gregoriana Pragensis ensemble. After graduation from the clarinet studies at Prague’s conservatory in 1986, he took up musicology at Faculty of Arts of Charles University. Since the second form he specialized in medieval music, mainly in Gregorian chant. In 1991 he graduated from Paris conservatory (Conservatoire Nationale Superieur de Musique de Paris), the program Conducting Gregorian Chant, and in the following year he worked as a conductor of the Choeur gregorien de Paris ensemble. Then he also often visited the Solesmes monastery, a centre of research into Gregorian chant, with the view of studying and consulting.

At present he works at the Institute of Musicology of Charles University where he lectures on topics related to Gregorian chant and liturgy (neumatic and choral notation, introduction to Gregorian chant studies, seminar on medieval monody etc.). He regularly tutors in summer courses on theory and practice of Gregorian chant in France (Academie internationale de Sees, Centre de musique polyphonique de Picardie Saint-Valery) and in Switzerland (Festival de Musique Sacre de Fribourg). On a long term basis he has been co-operating with the Czech Radio in creating programs on Gregorian chant (History of the Tone, a cycle Liturgical Year through Gregorian Chant).

Besides medieval sacred music he also deals with other music genres. Together with his two brothers he is active in the Eben Brothers Band.

We will bring more specific information about the Workshop soon.
