2. The Bohemian Quartet. Wikipedia.org's article on the Bohemian Quartet (mentioned on marker): The Bohemian Quartet (known as the Czech Quartet after 1918) were a Czech string quartet of international repute that was founded in 1891 and disbanded in 1934....The group made repeated tours in Europe, especially with the quartets of Dvorak and Smetana, and were noted for their warm tone and fiery rhythms. In 1922 the four members were appointed professors at the Prague Conservatory. Many key contemporary works were written for and/or first performed by the Bohemian Quartet. Most notably, this included works by Antonín Dvořák and Leoš Janáček, such as Janáček's second string quartet, subtitled "Intimate Letters". (Submitted on October 4, 2009.)
