The Martinu Quartet - April 22ndThe Martinu Quartet - April 22nd
On Wednesday, April 22, the Hampden-Sydney Music Series will host The Martinu String Quartet. The Martinu Quartet, originally the Havlák Quartet, was formed in 1976 by students of the Prague Conservatoire, inspired by and modeled on such string quartets as the Vlach and the Smetana. Intensive practice and study of the quartet repertoire resulted in seven prizes at important international competitions for the group. They have been recognized at the ARD Munich, Evian (France); Yehudi Menuhin (Portsmouth, Britain); and the Prague Spring competitions. Full Story...
