Josef Suk (1929 - 2011)

Great-grandson of composer and violist Antonín Dvořák and grandson of composer Josef Suk I, Josef Suk III was a key figure in the history of Czech string playing, being probably the most prolific and acclaimed player of his generation from that country. His sizeable discography covers comprehensively the violin’s mainstream repertoire as well as some recordings on viola. He was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque six times, as well as gold and platinum discs and the Wiener Flötenuhr and Edison prizes. Aside from his prominent worldwide playing career he also conducted
and enjoyed chamber music, performing with several small ensembles including his own Suk Trio with Julius Katchen (piano) and János Starker (cello). During his student years he became first violinist of the Prague Quartet. This interest was something of a continuation of his grandfather’s legacy: Josef Suk I was second violinist of the Czech Quartet (known as the Bohemian Quartet 1891–1918).

The selections made here from Suk’s large discography represent his approach to mainstream repertoire (although there is not space for every well-known collaboration, such as the Brahms violin sonatas recorded with Julius Katchen), as well as some of the music with which he had strong ancestral connections, and some of his prize-winning releases.
