Pražák Quartet

February 23, 2021 7:30pm The Vancouver Playhouse, 600 Hamilton St.

Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet No. 6 in B-flat major Op. 18
Bedřich Smetana: String Quartet No. 2 in D minor
Antonín Dvořák: String Quartet No. 13 in G major Op. 106

Established in 1972, this is our final opportunity to hear the Pražák Quartet, who retire after this season. “Playing of unusual lightness, clarity and technical refinement” (Los Angeles Times), with “a glimmer of the character, spirit and feeling of ‘old world’ chamber music…that comes forth like a fine wine stored in an old casket!” (Geoffrey Newman).
