Wihan Quartet: an ensemble of the highest quality in Rudolfinum
The program of this year´s final Chamber Music Series concert will confront A. Dvořák´s popular String Quintet in E Flat Major with the modern musical language of Erwin Schulhoff − his dark, dramatic String Sextet will offer an effective contrast to Dvořák’s sunny, cheerful work.
The early Piano Quartet in A Minor by Dvořák’s favourite pupil and later on son-in-law Josef Suk can be regarded as a sort of link between the traditional and the modern. The chief protagonist on the evening’s program will be the Wihan Quartet, which has won many important prizes.
Internationally, the quartet is widely regarded as an ensemble of the highest quality, and its members will be joined by other musicians – the pianist Michail Lifits, the cellist Jens Peter Maintz, and the violist Paulina Sachs. Together they will bring the chamber music “festival within a festival” to a conclusion in grand style.
