Jaroslav Tÿma was born and educated in Prague.  He graduated from the Prague Conservatory and the Academy of the Performing Arts, where he now teaches organ performance and improvisation.  While still a student, he won prizes at several international competitions, including Linz, Prague and Leipzig.  In addition to being a concert organist, he also performs on harpsichord, clavichord and forte piano.  He is known throughout the world for his improvisations, which earned him first prizes at both the Haarlem and Nuremberg competitions.  He has been guest performer at the Prague Spring Festival, Musikfestspiele in Dresden and the Flanders Festival and he continues to concertize in prestigious concert venues in Europe, the United States, South Africa and Japan.  As an advocate of new music, Jaroslav Tÿma performs works by his contemporaries and is also a composer of note.  Through 1990-1993 he performed the complete organ works of J.S. Bach in Prague.  He records for radio, television, and numerous recording companies.  His discography includes over twenty solo recordings, most recently a recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations on both the harpsichord and clavichord.
