Notes & Reviews:

The Ragazze Quartet is a young Dutch/British string quartet acclaimed for its musical enthusiasm, talent, versatility and dynamic presentation. On Cesko, they take us across Europe to the extraordinary land of Bohemia (popularly known as Cesko, but officially the Czech Republic), the homeland of composers Antonín Dvorák and Erwin Schulhoff. The indescribable energy of this music transports us. Its folk melodies and harmonies reveal the essence of a nation steeped in a deep cultural history. Both composers were masters of merging the old with the new and fusing a rich new musical heritage.
