This recording brings together, for the first time, Ivan Klánský, the finest living Czech keyboard stylist, following in the footsteps of his compatriot Ivan Moravec, and the string quartet that is one of todayís most representative of the Old World. The Praěák Quartet demonstrates that, in addition to its Bohemian heritage, it is equally at home in the repertoire of both Viennese schools, be it the first (from Haydn to Schubert) or the second (from Schoenberg to Webern, by way of Berg and Zemlinsky). This is the first major recording of Dvořákís two piano quintets since the historic concert (6 June 1982) given at the Rudolfinum in Prague, by Sviatoslav Richter and the Borodin Quartet, then at its peak. Both in A major, one is extremely famous and now played as frequently as its model, Brahmsís Opus 34, whereas the other was long considered immature, and the critical edition of which did not come out until 1977. This release is part of the collection of new recordings made by PRAGA to commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of the Czech composerís death (1st May 1904).

Does this mean that Praga have recorded the two Dvorak piano quintets Denis? i listened again on the weekend to the Mendelssohn piano sextet and agree that Klansky is an excelent pianist!
