The Prazák Quartet, one of the most eminent modern quartets and a major heir to the Czech tradition, celebrates it's 50th anniversary in 2022. On this occasion, Praga Digitals is presenting a limited edition anniversary box set of 50 CDs featuring all the recordings made between 1992 and 2018 under the guidance of the late Pierre Émile Barbier, founder of the label. This exceptional box set traces the ensemble's journey in it's "historic" formation, comprising Václav Remes (followed by Pavel Hula from 2010 onwards) on first violin, Vlastimil Holek on second, Josef Kluson on viola, and Michal Kanka on cello - prior to it's near-complete re-configuration in 2020. At the heart of the program are the complete quartets of Beethoven and the very first complete recording of the works of the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg, Berg, Webern), Czech repertoire (Dvorák, Smetana, Janácek, Martinu) and Viennese Classicism (Haydn, Mozart), as well as German Romanticism (Schubert, Brahms, Schumann, Mendelssohn), the Russians (Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich), but also Strauss, Mahler, Zemlinsky, Schulhoff. The collaboration between the Prazák Quartet and Praga Digitals marks one of the most important epic ventures of modern recording, reminiscent of the golden age of the Amadeus, Juilliard or Alban Berg Quartets - a priceless legacy as much in terms of it's scope as it's artistry and sound quality, as well as it's multiple awards.
