Ensemble Postillon is composed of five musicians of four different nationalities who met during their studies of historical performance in Frankfurt am Main. The musicians share an enthusiasm for early music. With rich and colourful instrumentation, the ensemble focuses on almost forgotten works by composers of late Baroque and early Classical music for three top voices and basso continuo. In March 2019, Ensemble Postillon reached the final of the prestigious International Telemann Competition in Magdeburg, and the harpsichordist Hwa-Jeong Lee was awarded third prize for his general basso and obbligato playing.
 
Petra Václavíková is one of the Czech Republic’s promising young Baroque oboists and flautists. While studying at Pilsen Conservatory, she received the prestigious Ringve scholarship, which is awarded to arts students from Central Europe. She was a member of the Baroque youth orchestra Bachs Erben as part of her bachelor's degree in Baroque oboe performance in Bremen, Germany. Since 2016, she has been doing a master's degree in oboe and recorder playing in Frankfurt am Main. In the summer of 2017, she won an orchestral academy audition at the prestigious Innsbruck Festival of Early Music in Austria. Petra Václavíková performs with many early music ensembles in Germany. She is also involved with Peter Wuttke’s Haynes Catalogue, the world’s largest bibliography of literature on early oboe music. At the start of her bachelor’s and master’s studies, she received support from the Endowment Fund for the Promotion of Classical Music.
