Zemlinsky Quartet

Founded in 1994, the Zemlinsky Quartet has become a much-lauded example of the Czech string quartet tradition. They won the 1st Grand Prize in the 2010 Bordeaux String Quartet Competition and enjoyed a string of top competition prizes from the Banff, Prague Spring and London international string quartet competitions. They also received the prestigious Alexander Zemlinsky Advancement Award from the Alexander Zemlinsky Foundation.

The Zemlinsky Quartet has toured extensively on four continents. The repertoire of the ensemble is far ranging, containing more than 180 works by many leading composers from the classical period to the present day. Since early 2007, the Zemlinsky Quartet has recorded exclusively for the French record label Praga Digitals, having released seven titles including 'Diapason d'Or' award winning 4-CD set of early string quartets by Antonin Dvo?rak. The recordings of the Zemlinsky Quartet have received universal critical acclaim. Having studied with Walter Levin (LaSalle Quartet) and Josef Kluson? (Pražak Quartet), the group currently teaches as assistant quartetin-residence at the Musikakademie Basel in Switzerland and gives numerous master classes. First violinist František Sou?cek also teaches violin and chamber music at the Prague Conservatory.
