June 28, 2021 - The Best of Czech and World Classical Music

A beautiful programme by a string quartet composed of the leading Czech orchestras’ members. Captivating concerts in the intimate setting of the Church of St. Martin create a truly unique atmosphere as the church is located in an unusual place, a little hidden and aside the busy streets.

 All members of the quartet come from musical families, musical feeling thus runs in their blood. In particular, Jitka Balková represents the fourth generation of Czech musicians carrying the family’s musical legacy. The duration of the concert is approximately one hour.
