We are now presented a massive back and new catalogue by the Talich String Quartet. But one of the special recording is string quartets by Johann Baptist Kalliwoda. Living in the finale years of Beethoven he composed three string quartets dubbed as "missing link between Beethoven and Schumann". It is also rich of Czech folk elements. The quartets are:
String quartet no. 1 in E minor op. 61 (pub. 1835)
String quartet no. 2 in A major op. 62 (pub. 1836 (published by Amadeus-Verlag in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1999)
String quartet no. 3 in G major op. 90 (Moderato - Scherzo (Vivace in G minor)
