The pride of the modern Czech Republic Looking toward a new era with a new
first violinist! Plans underway for the Prazak Quartet 2012 Japan & Asia Tour
The Prazak Quartet gave 11 performances during their 2009 tour throughout Japan, and they have since welcomed Pavel Hula of the Kocian Quartet as their new first violinist. The "Rebirth of the Prazak" has been acclaimed to great success not only in Europe originally but also in America and Australia.
The Prazak Quartet made an appearance at the "La Folle Journée" festival in Tokyo last May, showing their true merit with performances from the Second Viennese School, Beethoven and Brahms, music that is rarely sought from a Czech quartet on a Japan tour. We will be eagerly looking forward to their return for the 2012 Japan tour.
There are plans in progress for the Lotus Quartet to perform a piano quintet for the 2012 Japan & Asia tour together with the Vienna-raised Japanese pianist Iku Miwa, who is often chosen to perform alongside Vienna Philharmonic concertmasters Rainer Honeck and Volkhard Steude.

Plans underway for the Prazak Quartet 2012 Japan & Asia Tour
The Prazak Quartet toured many cities with 11 performances throughout Japan in 2009, which now has Pavel Hula of the Kocian Quartet as the new first violinist.
The "Rebirth of the Prazak" has been acclaimed to great success not only in Europe originally but also in America and Australia.
Though the Prazak Quartet will visit Japan only briefly this May for performing repertoire not normally sought in Japan from a Czech quartet such as Second Viennese School composers R. Strauss and Reger at the "La Folle Journée" festival, there are now plans underway for a 2012 tour in China, Korea and Japan.
