Established in 1960 by Professor Bohdan Warchal, the Slovak Chamber Orchestra has since developed into one of the most popular ensembles in the field of Slovak classical music, and one of the principal interpreters of Slovak art music abroad. Over the years the Slovak Chamber Orchestra has introduced itself on the most important concert stages and music festivals in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia. It has co-operated with many prominent world-renowned soloists, and inspired the work of several Slovak composers, resulting in premiere performances of their new compositions. The ensemble has recorded more than 100 music titles originating in different periods, for domestic as well as foreign record companies.

It was first performed at the Covent Garden Theatre in London on 18 May 1737. It was not successful and only given four times.
