We hear that the Prazak Quartet are splitting up. They will finish playing in 2021, after half a century on the road and 3,000 concerts.

Their legacy consists of more than 60 recordings.

Present members are: Jana Vonášková, Vlastimil Holek, Josef Klusoň and Michal Kaňka.

    One of the underappreciated, truly great chamber music ensembles of recent decades! Yes, I am biased having had the privilege to represent them for close to 30 of those years. But this quartet consistently probed and discovered new revelations, and exhibited unbridled enthusiasm in music of all genres – Czech of course, but also the first and second Viennese schools. Congratulations and “ahoj”, dear friends, on a magnificent career bringing joy to countless listeners worldwide!
