Czech Roots: Meccore String Quartet
From LSO St Luke's in London, the Meccore String Quartet perform the urgently expressive first string quartets of Janacek and Smetana.
In the second of this week's concerts of Czech music recorded at LSO St Luke's in London, the Meccore Quartet play Janacek's passionate First String Quartet (inspired by a Tolstoy novella), and Smetana's pressingly autobiographical String Quartet No 1, subtitled 'From my Life'.
Introduced by Fiona Talkington.
Janáček: String Quartet No 1 ‘Kreutzer Sonata’
Smetana: String Quartet No 1 in E minor ‘From my Life’
Recorded at LSO St Luke's, London, on 14 June 2019
