Daniel Hrinda was born in Czechoslovakia into an artistic family. It was always very hard for him to decide between arts and sports. Daniel studied bassoon at the Prague Academy of Arts with Professor Jiri Seidl and as a postgraduant at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna with Professor Milan Turkovic. At the same time he played football for the Prague City clubs’ first division. Since 1992 he regularly attended Academy of Maurice Bourgue, whose influence was decisive on Daniel´s musical journey.

Still as a student Daniel became a member of the fine chamber ensemble Czech Nonet. Soon after he became the Principal Bassoonist of the acclaimed Prague Chamber Orchestra, with whom he performed in all major music halls worldwide and made many recordings in the 1990’s. Before joining the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, Daniel was a founding member of the Petronas’ Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in Kuala Lumpur in 1998.
Daniel is a member of the regular educational event of the Central European Music Academy that is sponsored by the European Union. Beside music he is a great fan of golf.
