OUT NOW | Bennewitz Quartet's New CD: 'Ullmann, Krasa, Schulhoff, Haas' [LISTEN]

Supraphon Records has announced the release of the Bennewitz Quartet's new album: 'Ullmann, Krasa, Schulhoff, Haas: String Quartets'

Supraphon Records has announced the release of Czech-based Bennewitz Quartet's new album: Ullmann, Krasa, Schulhoff, Haas: String Quartets.

The disc features Viktor Ullmann's (1898-1944) 3rd String Quartet, Hans Krása's (1899-1944) Theme and Variations for String Quartet, Erwin Schulhoff's (1894-1942) Five Pieces for String Quartet - and Pavel Haas' (1899-1944) 2nd String Quartet.

"The music of the Czech-German-Jewish composers has been a part of our repertoire for the last twenty years ..." violinist Štěpán Ježek has told The Violin Channel.

"As is well known, the fate of the Jewish composers of the first half of the 20th Century has been a tragic one ... despite that, their music is filled with lyricism and poetry often sharply contrasting the circumstances surrounding it ..." he has said.

"This has always been fascinating for us and we hope it will speak out to the listeners as well."
