The Kapralova Quartet

Veronika Panochova [1st violin], Simona Hurnikova [2nd violin], Karolina Strasilova [viola], Simona Hecova [violoncello].

The Kapralova Quartet, named after Czech composer Vitezslava Kapralova [1915-1940], was founded in 1995 in Prague, originally under the name of Venus Quartet Prague. In 2001, with the consent of Kapralova's heirs and the encouragement of the Kapralova Society, Toronto-based music society dedicated to preserving and promoting the memory of Kapralova, the ensemble changed its name to pay a tribute to one of the most remarkable women composers of the 20th century.

Considered one of the finest Czech quartets, the critically acclaimed ensemble studied quartet performance with Prof. Bretislav Novotny, first violinist of the excellent Prague String Quartet. It has a broad repertoire which includes, besides classical works, a number of important compositions of the twentieth century, such as the complete quartets by Alfred Schnittke. The ensemble has recorded for radio and television, and their recordings have been released on compact disc. The ensemble regularly performs abroad, and has delighted audiences in a variety of countries that include France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, Japan, Izrael, Cyprus, and Canada.

The ensemble regularly collaborates with Eugen Indjic [piano], Katerina Englichova [harp], Philippe Cuper and Ludmila Peterkova [clarinet], Skampa Quartet, Prazak Quartet, and Prague Symphony Orchestra.
