Katerina Pavlikova is an established and prominent saxophonist in the Czech Republic. Her musical activities are wide-ranging, but she is most recognized for her work in presenting the baritone saxophone as a concert instrument. Pavlikova collaborates with leading Czech symphonic and chamber ensembles; she has performed as a soloist with the Prague Philharmonia, Brno Philharmonic, Hradec Kralove Philharmonic Orchestra, South Czech Philharmonic, The Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra, Czech Sinfonietta, Lviv Philharmonic Orchestra and others.
Pavlikova has been a member of the Bohemia Saxophone Quartet since 1999. This leading Czech group has become renowned for their highly sonorous and refined sound. Their broad multi-genre repertoire includes classical and jazz styles, as well as contemporary music mostly dedicated directly to the ensemble by the composer. The BSQ also performs many transcriptions and arrangements, most of which were arranged by Katerina herself.
Pavlikova has released a solo album Dive (2020) with music for baritone saxophone and electronics by Danish composer Wayne Siegel and an album by the Tilia Trio with music by J.S. Bach, A. Dvorak and D. Milhaud (2020). She has recorded three CD albums with the Bohemia Saxophone Quartet: Emotions (2019), History of Jazz (2009) and Saxcriptions (2005), as well as participating in the CD Homage to Jaroslav Jezek with the Rudolfinum Jazz Orchestra (2006), Jazz at Prague Castle with the Stepan Markovic Saxtet (2006), Just Floating Lightly with the Petr Korinek Jazz Orchestra (2004) and in many other recordings produced for Czech Radio.
During the COVID-19 pandemic Katerina produced about 30 music videos in which she played alone or with other musicians. The most important international musical collaboration has been with American saxophonist Dave Camwell, which has resulted in virtuosic new editions of well-known and popular classical works to great acclaim.
On top of her performance work, Katerina Pavlikova is also intensively involved in teaching. She teaches saxophone at the Conservatory in Ceske Budejovice and at the Music and Art School in Volary.
