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.

Important concerts were among the New Year´s Eve 2012 in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and summer concerts 2015 and 2016 in the Vienna State Opera.
