Four vibrant Czech works for string quartet by the four founding fathers of Czech music. From Suk’s carol-based Meditation to Janá?ek’s wildly passionate “Intimate Letters”; from Dvo?ák’s lovesong-cycle “Cypresses” to Smetana’s autobiographical “From My Life”, these are deeply personal works bequeathed upon that most sublime medium, the string quartet.

Programme

Dvo?ak: Cypresses
Jana?ek: Quartet no. 2 “Intimate Letters”
Suk: Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale “St. Wenceslaus”
Smetana: Quartet no. 1 “From My Life”
