  • Zemlinsky Quartet

Prague-born, Paris-based composer Kryštof Mařatka, who studied with Petr Eben at the Prague Conservatory, has made a high-spirited arrangement of Janáček’s wind sextet Mládí for string quartet. The four-movement piece complements the rhythmic energy, folk-like boldness and passion of Zemlinsky’s First String Quartet of 1896, a ravishing masterwork of late Romantic music.
