Zemlinsky String Quartet
Sunday, October 27, 2019
The Zemlinsky Quartet is a much lauded example of the revered Czech string quartet tradition. Grand Prize winner at the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition (2010), the Zemlinsky Quartet performs in the world’s most important venues. Recent appearances include London’s Wigmore Hall, Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Library of Congress, and the Prague Spring Festival. Their vast repertoire includes over 200 works; from Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Dvořák to works by contemporary composers. We are thrilled to welcome them back to Edmonton!
