Complete String Quartets
(Boxed Set, 10PC)
Dvorak's had a lifelong preoccupation with the String Quartet form, and this 10-CD set presents all 13 of them, highlighted, of course, by the famous String Quartet No. 12 in F "American." And, as befitting a composer whose works were so heavily influenced by Czech folk elements, the Czech Stamitz Quartet (winners of the Grand Prix Du Disque for these recordings) performs these works, many of which have seldom been on CD.
