Since 1998 the quartet bears the name of the violinist and director of a music conservatory in Prague, Antonín Bennewitz, and is one of the top international chamber ensembles. This status is confirmed not only by their victories in two prestigious competitions – Osaka in 2005 and Prémio Paolo Borciani, Italy in 2008, but also by the acclaim of the critics. At SFS, it will feature the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Ludwig van Beethoven.
