About

This release is Volume 23 in the ongoing Artesmon series - Czech Philharmonic Orchestra Chamber Series. Members of Variace Ensemble Prague either play in the Czech Philharmonic or are associated with the Prague classical music scene.

Their programme is a kind of String Quartets Greatest Hits, with movements by Mozart, Haydn, Suk, Smetana and Dvořák. A double here, as listeners will get the Largo and Finale from his String Quartet no.12, op.96, better known as "The American".  In fact, there is more Dvořák with his Slavonic Dance no.3, from Op.46, Humoresque no.7 and Two Waltzes, op.54.

Two non-quartet pieces appear in arrangements - Bach's Air from his Orchestra Suite no.3, and from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, the Largo from "Spring".

Variace Ensemble Prague:
- Jan Jouza (violin)
- Petra Brabcová (violin)
- Vlasta Beranová (viola)
- Josef Dvořák (cello)
