    Having suffered a major stroke on Dec. 12, 2012, Tomas Svoboda was unable to compose from that time forward. However, he had already composed a substantial catalog of more than 250 works [50+ recorded], that were composed over a span of 63 years.

    His catalog includes 6 symphonies, 7 concerti, 12 string quartets, and numerous other works, from solo pieces through large ensemble compositions. This body of works will stand as an amazing lifetime musical achievement in its totality and quality.

    In December 2003, Svoboda's Marimba Concerto was recognized in a Grammy Award nomination in the category of "Best Instrumental Soloist With Orchestra"; Niel DePonte, marimba; James DePreist, cond.; Oregon Symphony; [Albany Records].

    Tens of thousands of musicians around the world have performed the music of Tomas Svoboda and will continue on for generations to come.
