Notes and Editorial Reviews

The majority of the pieces on this album were composed by Pavel Fischer, formerly the Škampa String Quartet's first violin, whose Moravian musical roots and years with the Škampa Quartet have resulted in remarkable accomplishments. His compositions, inspired by Moravian, as well as Scottish, Balkan and Roma folklore, have earned the quartet enthusiastic responses. Yet the "artificial forms" of classical music have not reduced the sheer emotion, joy, sorrow and nostalgia so purely found in folk music an iota.

The genre-bending Škampa Quartet invited singer Iva Bittová to also participate as a composer in their new project, with a piece titled Hopahop talita.
