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 Year's Concerts of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Friedemann Riehle are a highlight of the Prague music scene. The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra also took part in Marcos Witt's CD Sinfonía del alma in 2007.

In Dubai's New Year's Eve celebrations to mark the start of 2013, the orchestra performed live in time to the city's fireworks display.
