About this Recording

DVORAK, A.: String Quartets, Vol. 8 (Vlach Quartet) - No. 3

This volume from the Vlach Quartet Prague’s acclaimed Dvořák 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 Dvořák nationalist consciousness and the emergence of his own distinctive voice as a Czech composer. Volumes 1–7 are also available. “Vlach magic…this must be among the world’s finest quartets” (Gramophone).
