...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Central European String Quartet, formed in 2017, give an Antonín Dvořák recital as part of the Talent Obliges series. The four artsist are led by 24-year-old Miranda Liu. The audience can enjoy two Dvořák string quartets in the first half of the concert. First up is the famous ‘American’ F major quartet, which the Czech composer wrote while in the United States in the 1890s. Dvořák worked in New York as director of the National Conservatory of Music of America between 1892-1895. The second piece is the ‘Slav’ E-flat major string quartet. After the intermission, the quartet are joined by pianist István Lajkó, teacher of the Liszt Academy, to perform Dvořák’s classical A major piano quintet. Here, too, we find Czech national elements so characteristic of Dvořák, for example in the fast third, dance movement.
