On their valedictory release, the world-renowned Tokyo String Quartet presents a pair of the group's favorite chamber works that offer a glimpse into the private world of two Czech composers. Antonin Dvorak and Bedrich Smetana - although they were sometimes regarded as musical opposites in their homeland - together came to represent the quintessential sound of 19th-century Czech music.

''The combination of force and quiet restraint, powerful passion and surreal stillness that the Tokyo brings to this late-Romantic music is gorgeous. All four instruments are perfectly balanced, each player knowing exactly when to come to the fore and when to retreat into the background. These four men may have been around the world umpteen times, but they always make their music sound fresh and spontaneous... the Tokyo can hold their bows high as they make the most graceful of exits.'' --Toronto Star
