Duo Brikcius is a Czech chamber music ensemble created by two young cellists of international renown, brother and sister, Anna Brikciusová and František Brikcius. Both founding members are well acquainted with the solo cello repertoire, but decided to increase their repertoire with music written for two cellos.
Duo Brikcius have appeared in many festivals both in their native Czech Republic and abroad, including in Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
