The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra was established in 1995 by Czech musicians with the German conductor Friedemann Riehle. The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra quickly developed into one of the leading orchestras for CD-recording in Europe. The orchestra plays about 200 recording sessions every year. The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra works with labels such as Decca, EMI, Sony BMG and many international film studios. Soloists like Jonas Kaufmann and Sol Gabetta have recorded CDs with the orchestra. The New Years Concerts of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Friedemann Riehle are a highlight of the Prague music scene. Also the Prague philharmonic orchestra has taken part in Marcos Witt's CD "Sinfonía del alma" in 2007.
