Pacifica's Janacek, Finckel/Han's Smetana

If you haven't discovered our Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center broadcast Saturdays at 1oAM, you might want to check out this week's broadcast of Czech masters. First, the pioneering Bohemian Bedrich Smetana is represented by his Piano Trio- written in memory of his eldest daughter - played by acclaimed violinist Cho-Liang Lin and husband and wife David Finckel and Wu Han. Then the adventurous Moravian Leos Janacek is represented by his Second String Quartet - his "manifesto on love" - performed by one of the world's foremost string quartets, the Pacifica.
