Lubomír Havlák is the leader of the Martinů Quartet. The Martinů Quartet first came together in 1976 at the Conservatory in Prague as students of Viktor Moučka, a member of the Vlach Quartet. During their studies at the Academy of Music, the members of the Quartet were taught by Antonín Kohout of the Smetana Quartet. At the same time they took part in master-classes with leading ensembles such as the Tel Aviv, Amadeus, Guarneri, Juilliard and Alban Berg Quartets.

The Quartet’s repertoire includes works from the mainstream of string quartet literature. Naturally it specialises in the works of Czech composers such as Smetana, Dvořák and Janáček, with particular interest in the works of Bohuslav Martinů. In January 2004 the Quartet’s recording of Martinů’s String Quartets, Vol. 2 (Naxos 8.553783) won the “Best Chamber/Solo Instrumental 20th Century” category at MIDEM in France.
