Florian joins the Škampa Quartet at the Dartington Festival.  Dvořák’s Piano Quintet Op. 81 was written in just seven weeks during 1887 at the composers country cottage at Vysoká, between two of his greatest symphonies, the Seventh and the Eighth. It’s ranked, along with the quintets of Schumann and Brahms, as one of the finest. Dvořák scholar Alec Robertson wrote: ‘Simply one of the most perfect chamber music works in existence; the melodies are of the greatest beauty and freshness, and a joyous springtime happiness flows through the music.’

The Škampa Quartet is among the very finest of Czech string quartets, representing their country in major concert halls around the world for twenty-five years.  Prizes at international competitions, awards from the Royal Philharmonic Society, and an appointment as the first-ever Resident Artists at the Wigmore Hall provided early recognition which led to invitations to perform at major festivals world-wide including Prague Spring, Schwetzingen, Edinburgh, Schleswig-Holstein and Melbourne. From the beginning they have established a close relationship with BBC Radio 3 resulting in regular broadcasts. They teach in many places around the world, but particularly at the Royal Academy of Music in London where they were appointed Visiting Professors of Chamber Music in 2001.
