The Friends of Chamber Music present the Pražák Quartet and the Zemlinsky Quartet
The 18th visit by the wonderful Czech Pražák Quartet to the Vancouver Playhouse is combined with the first appearance by the Zemlinsky Quartet. The Pražák Quartet continues the Bohemian burnished string sound tradition, making it an ongoing favourite with our audience. In this combined extravaganza, the musicians will perform folk-tinged string sextets by Dvořák and Schulhoff, and finish with Mendelssohn’s glorious teenage masterpiece, the String Octet.
