The Pražák Quartet—one of today´s leading international chamber music ensembles—was established in 1972 while its members were students at the Prague Conservatory. Since then, the quartet has gained attention for its place in the unique Czech quartet tradition, and for its musical virtuosity.
For more than 30 years, the Pražák Quartet has been at home on music stages worldwide. They are regular guests in the major European musical capitals—Prague, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan, Madrid, London, Berlin, Munich, etc.—and have been invited to participate at numerous international festivals, where they have collaborated with such artists as Menahem Pressler, Jon Nakamatsu, Cynthia Phelps, Roberto Diaz, Josef Suk, and Sharon Kam.
In 2015 the Pražák Quartet, like the Janacek and Guarneri Quartets before them, opened a new chapter in their career by turning to youth and welcoming as leader the excellent violinist, Jana Vonaskova. A graduate of the Royal College of Music in London, she was a member of the Smetana Trio for 9 years
After several years of intensive study re-learning the repertoire in its new line-up, the quartet has once again taken to the international stage with great success. The spirit, freshness and agility of youth combine with the extensive experience of the ensemble’s founder-members to produce a renewed sound and energy and a sense of unity and togetherness that is truly remarkable.
