Jan Kubelik Society
The Jan Kubelik Society was established in Prague in 1990. Its founding members include Jan Kubelik's son, the world famous conductor Rafael Kubelik, and his daughter Anita Kubelikova.
The Society focuses on promoting the work of the famous violinist and composer; in particular, the publication of his gramophone recordings and the presentation of Jan Kubelik's works as part of the concert repertoire. The Society is involved in publishing, the organization of concerts and archive research, and endeavours to preserve the legacy of other famous Czech violinists from the past.

Hommage to Jan Kubelik
The Jan Kubelik Society released two CDs in 2006. One is called "Homage to Jan Kubelik", the other is "Ruggiero Ricci in Prague". The Homage to Jan Kubelik is a live recording from the concert played in honour of Jan Kubelik in a subscription series of the Czech Philharmonic. The concert master of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the violinist Miroslav Vilimec and the pianist Vladislav Vilimec perform, in addition to works by Jan Kubelik and N. Paganini (arranged by Kubelik), mostly lesser known pieces. The most interesting is the performance of the Polonaise by Dvorak, which was recorded in an unknown version for violin and piano.
