Concert Martinů Quartet

Concert by Martinu Quartet featuring music by Josef Suk, Bohuslav Martinů and Bedřich Smetana. The Martinů Quartet, originally the Havlák Quartet, was formed in 1976 by the then students of the Prague Conservatoire, inspired by and modelled on such string quartets as the Vlach and the Smetana. They put favourable circumstances to good use by intensive practice and study of the quartet repertoire, resulting in seven prizes at important international competitions. They included the 2nd prizes at the ARD Munich, Evian (France), Yehudi Menuhin (Portsmouth, Britain) and The Prague Spring competitions. April 10, 2015
