About

Josef Suk is the successor of Dvořák, and next to Leoš Janáček, he is considered the most important composer of the Czech modernism that began with him.

Starting from the influence of his famous mentor, Suk finally found his way from late romanticism to a very independent and complex late style. On this recording one can hear his Piano Quintet in G minor, op.8, and Životem a snem (Things Lived and Dreamt), which consists of ten pieces for piano.

The pieces are presented by Kiveli Dörken who plays together with a chamber music ensemble comprised of Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, Florian Donderer and Timothy Ridout.
