The Norbert Quartet was founded in 2003 by players from Czech Philharmonic so they could devote themselves intensively to chamber music, enriching their activities in the orchestra. Together, they employ the vast experience they have acquired in other chamber ensembles.
The quartet has given concerts successfully at home and abroad. The ensemble is named for Saint Norbart of Xanten, a patron saint of the Czech lands and a great religious figure of the early Middle Ages.

Classical music in Prague
Rudolfinum is the most famous concert building in Prague and the seat of the Czech Philharmonic. Its two concert halls stage the most prominent concerts such as the Prague Spring Festival.The elegant Neo-Renaissance building of Rudolfinum was built between 1876-1884 by Česká Spořitelna (Czech Savings Bank) on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its foundation.
The bulding was conceived as a multipurpose cultural center with a concert hall and exhibition halls. The building was taken under the patronage of the heir of the Habsburg throne, the archduke Rudolph after whom the building was named. Between 1919 and 1941 Rudolfinum served temporarily as an assembly hall of Czech Parliament.
Since then it has functioned as a concert hall, exhibition space, and a seat of the Czech Philharmonic. The intimate Suk Hall with excellent acoustics hosts chamber classical concerts, such as string quartets or piano recitals. Festive atmosphere and great concerts held in Rudolfinum will not let you forget this exceptional space.
