Notes & Reviews:

The Skampa Quartet, renowned for its recordings primarily of Czech composers such as Janacek, Dvorak and Smetana, has chosen two pleasant quintets from Dvorak's mature period for its new album. In the Quintet in G major the temperament and vitality of the first and last movements alternate with the tender, Dvorakesque lyricism of the slow movement. The piano part of the Quintet in A major is unusually brilliant and rewarding for the pianist, and Dvorak has here succeeded in achieving the ideal symbiosis between the sound of the piano and the string instruments.
