Panocha Quartet

The Panocha Quartet was formed in 1968, while its members were still students at the Prague Conservatory. The first great success came when the Quartet was named as laureate of the 1975 Prague Spring International String Quartet Competition. Since that time Quartet has made fifteen visits to the USA and Canada and been a regular visitor to Great Britain, as well as playing also in Australia, Japan, Israel Mexico and elsewhere. In 1976 it was awarded the Bordeaux Gold Medal and in 1982 came a Supraphon Gold Disc. In 1983 the Grad Prix du disque de l´Académie Charles Cross was received in Paris for the recording of Martinù´s Qartets. Panocha Quartet places particular emphasis on Czech music, but its repertoire also included many Viennese classics (Haydn) and works of 20th century (Bartók, Shostakovich). The many recordings for the Supraphon label include the current completion of all the chamber works of Antonín Dvorák.
