  • Wihan Quartet

The Wihan Quartet is an exceptional Czech ensemble, named after a famous exponent of the music of Dvořák. In this programme, it performs one of Dvořák’s most personal early works alongside an equally moving piece (1914) by his pupil and son-in-law, Suk, whose theme has long held special resonance for the Czech people.
