The Talich Quartet has been considered for many years to be one of the world´s finest string quartets. In addition to being famous for their interpretation of Czech music, they have a very wide - ranging repertoire. At the request of Steven Spielberg and the Shoah Foundation, the Talich Quartet recorded the music for the film documentary about Czech holocaust survivors called Hell on the Earth. This concert opens our second of three seasons of the Beethoven Quartet Cycle. In addition to the concert, there will be a pre-concert talk at 6:45 p.m. and Viennese coffee and desserts will be available for purchase.
"The Talich String Quartet from Prague is generally recognized as one of the preeminent ensembles in the quartet world. Its appearance at the Tabaret Hall yesterday was greeted by a capacity audience and, for the most part validated their fine reputation."
- The Ottawa Citizen.
