Suk Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale ‘Saint Wenceslas’ Op 35a
Smetana Quartet No 1 in E minor
Dvořák Piano Quintet in A Op 81

This leading Czech Quartet performs in Leamington for the first time, but the new leader, Jana Vonášková, has played in the Royal Pump Rooms several times in duos and a piano trio.  The Pražák is joined by Ivan Klánský of the Guarneri Piano Trio  for Antonin Dvorak’s popular Piano Quintet and the programme starts with an important work by his son in law Josef Suk, followed by the extra-ordinary first of the two quartets by Bedřich Smetana, regarded as the founder of Czech music.

Concert generously supported by Hugh Beale

The concert will be recorded by BBC Radio 3
