Pavel Kunčar

sound engineer & recording producer

I am a sound engineer and recording producer based in the Czech Republic. I concentrate mainly on the area of „classical“ or „artificial“ music and I also have plenty of experience with folk music, rock music, jazz, alternative music and other genres. I can take care of your recording from the very beginning to the final master ready to be published. "My aim is to capture the sound on the spot as well as possible to have a solid base for further work."

About me

MgA. Pavel Kunčar

I have studied sound engineering and music production at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. Since I finished school I have worked as a freelance sound engineer and recording producer and helped to create a lot of recordings with the best Czech and foreign musicians.

Sound engineer

I can work with you on a wide range of projects – from small demo recordings to large sessions with a symphonic orchestra. I am used to working in recording studios, in concert halls, in churches or anywhere your music is performed. It goes without saying that I only use world-class equipment such as Schoeps, DPA, AKG, Neumann, RME etc.

Together with StarRecordings Production company we can easily arrange live orchestral recording sessions with the musicians hand-picked from the best symphonic orchestras in the Czech Republic, choose the best place for your music, mix and master the recording. 

Recording producer

I am used to leading big and complicated orchestral recording sessions as well as simpler ensemble or solo sessions. I have plenty of experience with contemporary music and all other music genres. I always lead the session with close cooperation with the interpreter to be sure it matches his/her favorite style of work and he/she can concentrate solely on the music. I can lead the session in Czech, English or in both languages.


I regularly work with Czech orchestras and ensembles such as Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava, The Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Pardubice, Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra Olomouc, Czech Ensemble Baroque, Prague Castle Guard and Czech Police Band, Ensemble Damian, Sedlacek Quartet and many other well-known Czech ensembles and soloists. I closely cooperate with local and foreign recording companies such as StarRecording Production (CZ), Supraphon (CZ), PARMA Recordings (USA) or Brilliant Classics (NL).

Sound recordings I worked on

8. 11. 2023In summer this year we were working on a recording of big composition “Nádech věčnosti” from Jan Zástěra. The oratorium is about the life and death of St. Ludmila. It was a challange – big symphonic orchestra, choir, four soloists and many things to overcome. One of the soloists got ill and his part had to be recorded separately, but the sound had to be the same to fit into the sound image. The main narrator, world-famous artist Soňa Červená unfortunatelly died before she could record her part. We had to find some material from the rehearsals that was recorded on a hand-held recorder and adapt the audio to the existing recording. But…nothing we coudn’t handle! The recording is about to be released by Radioservis. Will keep you informed! [...]
23. 10. 2023Milan Paľa is a famous violinist. This autumn he performed as soloist in Brno with Poznan Philharmonic. The programe included Polish as well as Czech composer – Krzysztof Penderecki, Karol Szymanowski and Vítězslava Kaprálová. We were recording the concert full of wonderful 20th century music. [...]
1. 9. 2023Earlier this summer we were invited to participate on a recording of Madrigali Spirituali by Philippe de Monte which took place in Leuven Belgium. You can listen this woderful music here or in my playlist on the main page. The CD was recorded by famous Cappella Mariana under Vojtěch Semerád.
