Notes & Reviews:

Following the acclaimed recordings of the two violin concertos (SPR 3961) and the cello concerto (SPR 3989), Supraphon returns to the work of Josef Bohuslav Foerster, a composer somewhat neglected until recently. This double CD presents for the first time his complete string quartet oeuvre. The first quartet (1888) is dedicated to Tchaikovsky, who recognized in Foerster a talented music creator and in a letter encouraged him to persevere with composing.

"The Stamiz Quartet was founded in 1985. They are all accomplished musicians who like to revive forgotten Czech works. They play superbly in this excellent recording. There are five pages of English notes. This appears to be the only recording of the complete quartets."-American Record Guide
