More Info:

This release features the String Sextet in D minor, "Souvenir de Florence" by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as well as the well-known Verklärte Nacht by Arnold Schoenberg. Dedicated to the St. Petersburg Chamber Music Society, Tchaikovsky wrote his Sextet in D minor in the summer of 1890 after being nominated as an honorary member of the organization. The work is subtitled Souvenir de Florence because he sketched the principal themes while visiting Florence, Italy. Schoenberg's one-movement Verklarte Nacht is considered his earliest important work and was inspired by Richard Dehmel's poem of the same name. Recorded live in Rudolfinum Suk Hall, Prague, these works are performed by Jan Mrácek, Markéta Vokácová - violin; Kristina Fialová, Karel Untermüller - viola; Petr Nouzovsky, Ivan Vokác - cello.
