Notes & Reviews:
This volume from the Vlach Quartet Prague's acclaimed Dvorak 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 Dvorak's 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).
