Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Beethoven String Trio is made up of Czech musicians Pavel Hula, primaries of the Kocian Quartet, conductor and professor of chamber music at the Prague Academy (AMU), Josef Kluson and Michael Kanka, respectively , violist and cellist of the famous Prazak Quartet. After having played together for many years, they decided to formalize their joint experience. Their reference to Beethoven indicates that they concentrate resolutely on music from the 19th century up to the present day, the sole exception being their devotion to Mozart's well-known Divertimento K563 and the Beethoven string trio's masterworks.
