Notes & Reviews:

The history of the Hába Quartet, now based in Frankfurt, stretches back more than 50 years. Founded in Prague in 1946, the Quartet focused on collaboration with contemporary composers. The Quartet temporarily disbanded in 1964 after one of the musicians defected to Germany. It began work again in 1984 and is now well known through Europe.
