Notes and Editorial Reviews

The goal of the Joachim Wollenweber Edition is to turn the public’s attention to classical and romantic composers who have been largely forgotten. This release is the fifth album in the series, and is dedicated to four 18th century Bohemian composers, Antonin Kammel, Florian Leopold Gassmann, Franz Koczwara, and Anton Zimmerman. Performing these works is the Sojka String Quartet, which was founded by music students at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague in 2009. The ensemble’s focus is classical music, and contemporary works from the Czech republic.
