The Skampa Quartet live at the Wigmore Hall
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Dvorák - String Quartet No. 14 in Ab Op. 105

Wigmore Hall regulars the Skampa Quartet from the Czech Republic fly their national flag by performing one of Dvorák's late masterworks, which is imbued with a natural love of his native music. Shostakovich's Third Quartet has proved to be one of his enduring masterpieces and lovers of Schubert will still ask whether he ever intended to write other movements to go with his bittersweet Quartet Movement.
