Ali Rahbari began his collaboration with the Czech Philharmonic 39 years ago after he received the gold medal at the International Besançon Competition for Young Conductors (France) and he was immediately invited by the Slovak Philharmonic.
In 1985, the Czech Ministry of Culture awarded him the Antonín Leopold Dvořák medal (19th-century Czech composer of late Romantic music) which is only given to top performers of his music.
