Vlach Quartet Prague

This volume from the Vlach Quartet Prague’s acclaimed Dvorák String Quartet series presents the symphonically-conceived Third String Quartet of 1869/70, a richly rewarding work.

Despite the lingering influence of Liszt and Wagner, the inclusion of a topical Czech patriotic song in the quartet’s third movement suggests the strengthening of Dvorák’s nationalist consciousness and the emergence of his own distinctive voice as a Czech composer.

Volumes 1-7 are also available.

January 2013

“While it brims with appealing melody, the writing is unusually polyphonic: here and there, an innocuous-sounding chordal accompaniment will, without warning, bubble into contrapuntal life. It thus proves a near-ideal vehicle for the Vlach Quartet Prague's linear style.”
