Without any exaggeration, the interpretation of these works is nothing but contemplative, philosophically seeking, energetic, focused to the point, perfectly polished, and in its boldness empirically revealing! On the recording, Pavel Bořkovec Quartet opens up topics that were already supposed to be open in our country a long time ago. The quartet deserves a lot of credit for this album since they deserve, as one of the few Czech ensembles, a place in an international-wide music context.

The Pavel Bořkovec Quartet performed excellently, even in [Brahm’s] interpretively demanding composition. The whole ensemble provided a virtuoso performance. / Pavel Bořkovec Quartet nadchli v Atriu

The message of one of the oldest Beethoven’s quartets was perfectly captured by the players it looked youthfully fresh, at times even impudent, especially in the Variations when the composer put out his tongue at the audience. It’s been a long since a Beethoven’s quartet ruffed me up, entertained me and impressed me at the same time like this evening.

It occurred to us that contemporary music is underestimated, even by contemporary performers. There are few ensembles that devote themselves professionally to modern classical music like this. / Smyčcové kvarteto Pavla Bořkovce na scéně

Musicians do not inhibit, but approach the essence of the song and singer’s speech, sensitively and respectfully, and it is the interplay and harmony that are most valuable. They add charisma and atmosphere. / Romantická i lyrická bilance Moniky Načevy
