The critically acclaimed quartet, made up of Veronika Jaruskova and Eva Karova on violin, Pavel Nikl on Viola and Peter Jarusek on Violoncello, were recently awarded the coveted Recording of the Year prize at the Gramophone Awards for their wonderful recording of Dvořák Quartets Nos. 12 (American) and 13.

The ensemble have also just completed a short run of very warmly received recitals across the UK, which saw the quartet performing the same Dvořák Quartets alongside works by Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven.

Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau caught up with cellist Peter Jarusek to find out about the group's reaction to winning a Gramophone award, why Dvořák is so important to them and what we can expext from the quartet's next CD.
