DVOŘÁK / SUK
Syntonia is making an unprecedented combination of two almost contemporary Czech works with this new disc: the famous quintet op. 81 by Antonín Dvorák and the quintet op. 8 by Josef Suk. This recording will allow the general public to discover Suk's quintet, which remains too little known, and help to give it back the place it deserves in the chamber music repertoire, as here with Dvorák's masterpiece. who was Josef Suk's compatriot, mentor and stepfather.
Beyond their musical lineage, the association of these quintets appeared to Syntonia as obvious, like a kaleidoscope allowing to appreciate the richness of Czech music at the dawn of the 20th century. Music steeped in romantic tradition and folklore, opening up to the musical horizons of modernity.
"Followers of the clear line, the accomplices of Syntonia, haloed with a Diapason Discovery for their disc shared between Schumann and Franck, splash us here with freshness and energy. We marvel at the assurance and precision with which they cut this gem. " - Diapason
