Zemlinsky String Quartet
Qamuuqin Maxwell

Since its founding in 1994, The Zemlinsky String Quartet has become a much lauded example of the Czech string quartet tradition. The ensemble is named after the Austrian composer, conductor and teacher Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942), whose enormous contribution to Czech, German and Jewish culture during his 16-year stay in Prague was underestimated for decades. His four string quartets (the second one being dedicated to his student and brother-in-law Arnold Schönberg) belong to the basic repertoire of the ensemble.
