Bohdan Warchal is one of the most important figures in Slovak musical life. After concluding his studies at the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts in Brno, in 1957 he migrated to Slovakia, where he worked throughout his life. His name is associated with 40 years of activity in the post of artistic director and conductor of the Slovak Chamber Orchestra, of which he was a founder. From its inception this formation was one of the most popular in the field of classical music in Slovakia, and it was the foremost representative of Slovak performance art abroad.
As soloist he completed many recordings for former Czechoslovak Radio and he also collaborated with the former Czechoslovak Television.
Alongside his work as conductor and soloist, he also engaged enthusiastically in teaching work. He worked as violin teacher at the Bratislava Conservatory, the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts in Brno and during the last period of his life at the Academy of Performing Arts, Bratislava.
