Christmas concert: the Zemlinsky quartet

This year’s Czech Christmas concert features a much lauded example of the Czech string quartet tradition – the Zemlinsky Quartet. Compositions by Josef Mysliveček, Leoš Janáček a Antonín Dvořák for two violins, a viola and a violoncello will bring the holiday atmosphere to the Notre-Dame du Sablon church on the evening of December 12. You are cordially invited.

Since its founding in 1994, the Zemlinsky Quartet has been awarded multiple times for its outstanding artistic quality: it has won the First Grand Prize in the Bordeaux String Quartet Competition (2010) and also enjoyed a string of top competition prizes that include Banff, Prague Spring and London, where it was also awarded the Audience Prize.

So far, the Zemlinsky Quartet has toured extensively in four continents. The repertoire of the ensemble is far ranging containing more than 200 works by many leading composers, including contemporary music. In 2014, the Zemlinsky Quartet became only the fourth quartet in the history to record the complete string quartets by Antonín Dvořák.
