The Wihan Quartet
The Wihan Quartet has been described by International Record Review as: ‘ one of the best quartets in the world today.’ In 2015 the Quartet celebrated 30 years since its formation, and over the
years it has developed an outstanding reputation for the interpretation of its native Czech heritage, and of the many classical, romantic and modern masterpieces of the string quartet repertoire. Due to personal reasons, the charismatic and much loved viola player, Jiri Zigmund, retired from the Wihan Quartet in 2014.

The Quartet was very fortunate to find an excellent viola player in Jakub Cepicky, son of Leoš a nd this is the first CD the Quartet have recorded with Jakub.

The Quartet’s recording of Dvorak Op.34/Op.105 was chosen as a ‘Recording of the Year’ by MusicWeb International and BBC Music Magazine said of their Dvorak Op.61 recording: ‘This is the finest recorded performance I have encountered to date’. The Wihan’s recent release of Schubert G Major received an ‘outstanding’ from International Record Review and a ‘recommended’ from The Strad. The Sunday Times said of the recording: ‘This is playing of the highest quality from the Czech quartet. Their tempo for the opening movement is unusually broad, which allows you to savour to the full the harmonic richness of this extraordinary music.’
