Viktorie Kaplanová Dugranpere has a bachelor’s degree in church choral conducting from Prague’s Týn School under the auspices of the Faculty of Education of Charles University and a master’s degree in musicology (specializing in 18th-century Czech music) from the Faculty of Arts of Charles University. She spent part of her studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, where she focused mainly on French music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. She studied classical singing with Prof. Daniela Šounová Brouková, Prof. Jiří Kotouč and Prof. Pavla Zumrová. She has completed a number of vocal performance courses in Baroque music, opera and musical theatre (in Czech, French, Italian, English.). This interest led her to found the Victoria Ensemble, which seeks to rediscover and perform music that has been lost in time. She appears with the ensemble as a soloist, ensemble singer, and its artistic director.
 
As a solo singer, she also focuses on more recent music styles, in particular 20th-century songs and contemporary classical music. She also performs French chansons, jazz and swing (with the Viktorie & František Band).
 
Filip Dvořák studied piano at the Brno Conservatory. After graduation, his interest was directed towards the study of harpsichord playing and historically informed performance of early classical music at the Faculty of Music of Prague’s Academy of Performing Arts under Prof. G. L. Mrázková and basso continuo under Václav Lukes. He has participated in master classes led by Jacques Ogg, John Toll and Patrick Ayrton, as well as early music courses in Valtice, Moravia, and the “Handel Project” performance courses at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam. He deepened his interest in early music performance with a study visit to the  Hochschule Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in Leipzig. He is the founder of the Hipocondria Ensemble, which he has performed Baroque music in various countries. He also performs with Musica Florea, Collegium 1704, Ensemble Inégal, and Venti Diversi, among other ensembles. He is also a regular guest of the philharmonic orchestras in Pardubice, Hradec Králové, and Pilsen. He performs with members of the Czech Philharmonic in various chamber groups. Recently he has been working closely with the violinist and composer Jiří Sycha. Filip Dvořák also seeks out musical genres on the boundary between classical and jazz music. He is the founder of Transitus Irregularis, an ensemble that brings together Baroque music and jazz. He is also intensively involved in the making, intonation and tuning of harpsichords at František Vyhnálek’s workshop in Hovorčovice near Prague.
