Duo Brikcius is a Czech chamber music ensemble created by two promising young cellists (brother and sister), Anna Brikciusová and Franti_ek Brikcius. Both founding members are well acquainted with the solo cello repertoire, but decided to increase their repertoire with music written for this unusual combination (with great hidden potential) of two cellos. The main aims of Duo Brikcius are to study and perform works written for two cellos, enable the creation and performance of works that are not well known to the audience, encourage contemporary composers regardless of nationality or age), to create music for this ensemble, maintain the tradition of established composers, present Czech music culture abroad and bring to other people the joy of music.

Duo Brikcius has appeared in many festivals (for example Chot_bo_ské jaro, Boskovice, Ba__ar_ijske no_i, Duo Brikcius - 2 Cellos Tour, Dvo_ák festival, European days of Jewish culture, Století and_l_ a _ábl_ v Po_umaví, Daniel Pearl Music Festival, Festival Culturel International de Musique Symphonique, Festival Smetanovské dny, Festival Baroko v krvi) both in the Czech republic and abroad (Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom, etc.).
