About

According to the American composer Aaron Copland, the best way of learning something about the sixties is by listening to The Beatles’ records. Without any doubt, the music of The Beatles has been a major phenomenon not only of the sixties, but of the 20th century as a whole, and their inspiring tunes will continue to live in the widest variety of formats and arrangements.

This CD brings together carefully selected and imaginatively arranged songs by Luboš Krtička (b.1965), a composer of chamber, choral and film music who is also active on the Czech rock and jazz music scene.

The Wihan Quartet, formed in 1985, were described in International Record Review as “one of the best quartets in the world today” They have developed an impressive international career, which includes visits to major festivals in Europe and the Far East. They visit Japan regularly and have had highly acclaimed tours of the United States, Australia and New Zealand. During 2012/13 they were Czech Chamber Music Society Resident Ensemble at the Rudolfinum Dvorak Hall, Prague. They are also frequent visitors to the UK and can often be heard in concert at Wigmore Hall and many other venues.
