The Pražák Quartet—one of today´s leading international chamber music ensembles—was established in 1972, while its members were students at the Prague Conservatory. Since then, the quartet has gained attention for its place in the unique Czech quartet tradition, and for its musical virtuosity. The Pražák Quartet has been at home on music stages worldwide for over 30 years. They are regular guests at the major European musical capitals and have been invited to participate at numerous international festivals, where they have collaborated with such artists as Menahem Pressler, Jon Nakamatsu, Cynthia Phelps, Roberto Diaz, Josef Suk, and Sharon Kam.
Founded in 1994, while the members were still students, the Zemlinsky Quartet has become a much lauded example of the Czech string quartet tradition. Their vast repertoire contains more than 200 works ranging from Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Dvorak to works by contemporary composers. Their many recordings have received universal critical acclaim in such publications as The Strad, Gramophone, Diapason, and Fanfare magazines. The Zemlinsky Quartet is named after the Austrian composer, conductor and teacher Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942), whose enormous contribution to Czech, German, and Jewish culture had been underrated until recently.
