The Škampa Quartet’s album launch

In the presence of the media, the Škampa Quartet introduced its new album at the Adria Palace in Prague. The ensemble, who had exclusively recorded for Supraphon since 1992, and was a quartet in residence at Wigmore Hall in London, had received the Supraphon Gold Disc and a number of international accolades, including the Netherlands’ Prix Charles Hennen, the Czech Chamber Music Society Prize, and the Royal Philharmonic Society Award. During the launch of the CD, featuring Leoš Janáček’s string quartets, the news broke of the terrorist attack against the World Trade Center in New York City.
