Korngold: Piano Quintet; Janacek: String Quartet No. 2
This album features some of the finest chamber music written during the 1920s. The Janacek String Quartet, along with pianist Ivo Kahanek (in the Quintet) deliver stirring, incisive performances of these two great works.
The Janacek String Quartet was founded in 1947 and is one of today's finest European-based string quartets. Pianist Ivo Kahanek won the Prague String International music competition in 2004. He maintains a very active concert schedule.
"The virtuosity on display here is quite astonishing. The longstanding Janacek Quartet is joined by fellow Czech pianist Kananek for Korngold's Quintet, before paying tribute to their namesake in a programme that gels superbly." - BBC Music Magazine, July 2021
