The Škampa is among the very finest of an outstanding group of current Czech string quartets that has represented their country in major concert halls around the world for twenty years. Through their mentors, the legendary Smetana Quartet, they trace their roots to the earliest quartets - such as the Bohemian Quartet - in a land described in the 18th century as the Conservatoire of Europe and that remains, to this day, the very cradle of European chamber music.

To this innate musicality they have added their own particular research to inform their understanding of the folk-song and poetry, rhythms and dance from which their native music grew - to the extent that their recordings of the quartets by Jánacek and Smetana particularly are quoted as the bench-marks against which other performances are judged.
