The Skampa Quartets is one of the very finest Czech string quartets, representing their country in major Concert Halls around the world for twenty years.
Through their mentors, the legendary Smetana Quartet, they trace their roots to the earliest quartets - such as the Bohemian Quartet - in a land described in the 18th century as the Conservatoire of Europe and that remains, to this day, the very cradle of European Chamber Music.
“Blistering might be the overall description of how the Skampas played. Every nuance, every colour – from warm, soothing tone to terrifying rasping sul ponticello, with the widest of dynamic range – was delivered with white-hot energy.” The Independent
