Emil Viklický (born November 23, 1948 in Olomouc) is a jazz pianist and composer. In 1971 he graduated from Palacký University with a degree in mathematics. While a student he devoted a lot of time to play piano. In 1974, he received the award for best soloist at the Czechoslovak Amateur Jazz Festival, and in the same year he joined the SHQ Karel Velebny ensemble. In 1976, was the winner of the competition of jazz improvisation in Lyons, and its composition "green satin (Zeleny Saten) earned him the first prize in the music competition Munich Conservatory, where in 1985 his" Cacharel "won the second prize in the same competition.

In 1977 he was awarded a scholarship to study composition and arranging with Herb Pomeroy at Berklee College of Music in Boston. He then continued his studies in composition with Jarmo Sermila, George Crumb and Václav Kučera. Since he returned to Prague, drove his ensembles (primarily quartets and quintets), composed and arranged, and-after the death of Karel Velebny-worked as Director of the Summer Jazz Workshop Frydlant. He lectured at a similar event in Glamorgan, Wales. Between 1991 and 1995, Viklický was President of the Republic Jazz Society, and since 1994 he has worked with the ad lib Moravia ensemble, whose performances combine elements of Moravian folk music, modern jazz and contemporary serious music. In 1996, the ensemble has embarked on a highly successful tour of Mexico and the United States.

As a pianist, often performing Viklický lineups with international musicians from the United States and other European countries, including the international Quartet, Lou Blackburn Benny Bailey Quintet, and multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson. He made frequent appearances in Finland (with the Finnczech Quartet, and in particular with Jarmo Sermila) and Norway (with Norwegian Harald Gundhus Big Band) and has performed in USA, Japan, Mexico, Israel, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands (North Sea Festival) and elsewhere.

As a composer, Viklický attracted attention abroad, especially for having created a synthesis of expressive elements of modern jazz melodicism and Moravian folk song tone that is distinctly in contemporary jazz. In addition to this, however, also includes "straight-ahead" jazz modern, as well as chamber music and orchestral works that use certain elements of New Music, and sometimes his music requires a combination of classical and jazz artists. He also composes incidental music and film and has made soundtracks for several full-length feature films (e.g., the German horror Killer Condom) and television series. Over the years 1990 has dedicated an increasing amount of time to the composition of contemporary classical music for a variety of instrumental combinations ranging from small chamber ensembles and electronic instruments for orchestras and choirs.

Viklický 's work has received a number of prestigious awards. These include the second prize at Munich 1985 jazz composition (for "Cacharel"), the 1991 Film and Television Association for music for the animated film, the second prize at the 1994 Marimolin contemporary music in Boston (for "Tristana"), a Prague 1996 Prize for electroacoustic music (for "Paradise Park"), a prize of the Czech Music Fund 1,996 for use of folk music into art music, and the first prize in the international composition contest 2000 in Prague (for the opera Phaedra)

Viklický often accompanied jazz singer Eva Olmerová Republic, during the last years of his career.
