Notes & Reviews:

The distinctive and passionate sound of Romantic Czech music is gloriously showcased in this new disc by the Sacconi Quartet being released on the quartet's own label, Sacconi Records. The recording contains works by three prodigious Bohemian composers all of whom were featured in the outstanding 2010 Sacconi Chamber Music Festival in Folkestone, entitled 'Tales of Bohemia": The Meditation on the Old Czech Hymn, Saint Wenceslas by Josef Suk; Bedrich Smetana's String Quartet No. 1 in E minor, From My Life; and String Quartet No. 12 in F major, opus 96, American by Antonín Dvorák.
