Petr Skoumal

Petr Skoumal (born 7 March 1938) is a Czech musician and composer.

Skoumal focuses on film music. He also composes music for animated shorts (i.e. Pat & Mat, Maxipes Fík). In the past he made several stage performances with Jan Vodňanský in The Drama Club in Prague. After the break-up of the duo he made several albums for adults, echoing the communist times (i.e. Half-life, March). In the 90s he started a series of albums for children, based on the stories of Emanuel Frynta, Pavel Šrut and Jan Vodňanský (i.e. If the Pig had Wings, Pastries, How to hunt a Gorilla). The former was made into a stage performance for Divadlo v Dlouhé.

He is the son of the notable Czech translator Aloys Skoumal.
