The Czech Piano Quartets represent some of the finest works of Czech composers Joseph Suk, Vitezslav Novak, both students of Dvorak, and the Modernistic impressionist, Bohuslav Martinu. Each quartet is a unique and intimate cross-section of passion and energy; coupled with lush, gentle adagios. The Ames Piano Quartet, one of the most well-known and renowned piano quartets, brings this collection to life with a world-class caliber of technical proficiency, tenderness, and vigor.
