Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904) was a Czech composer, born in Nelahozeves, the first of nine children. He came to know music early, at his father’s inn, and became an accomplished violinist and violist as a youngster. He was first Bohemian composer to achieve worldwide recognition, noted for turning folk material into the language of 19th-century Romantic music. The Piano Quartet #2 is a prime example of the composer’s absolute maturity and one of the most conclusive testimonies of Dvorak’s exceptional ability to introduce innovation and originality into the Classical form.

Joaquín Turina (1882 -1949) was a Spanish composer. Born in Seville, he studied in Seville as well as in Madrid. He lived in Paris from 1905 to 1914 where he took composition lessons from Vincent d'Indy at his Schola Cantorum de Paris. Like his countryman and friend, Manuel de Falla, while there he got to know the impressionist composers Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy. Along with de Falla, he returned to Madrid in 1914, working as a composer, teacher and critic. In 1931 he was made professor of composition at the Madrid Royal Conservatory. He died in Madrid. His works include the operas Margot (1914) and Jardín de oriente (1923), the Danzas fantásticas (1919), La oración del torero, chamber music, piano works, guitar pieces and songs. Much of his work shows the influence of traditional Andalusian music. His music often conveys a feeling of rapture or exaltation.

Mark Carlson‘s lyrical, emotionally powerful, and stylistically unique music has earned him the admiration of audiences and musicians throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. A versatile composer, his approximately 100 works include art songs, chamber music, choral music, concertos and other large ensemble works, and songs for musical theater. He is currently working on an opera on The Scarlet Letter with librettist Bruce Olstad. Carlson is a member of the music theory and composition faculty at UCLA for many years and has also taught for fifteen years at Santa Monica College. The Founder and Artistic Director of the Los Angeles chamber music ensemble Pacific Serenades, and he recently retired as a flutist, after a lifetime of performing primarily chamber music, much of which was written for him. He was born in 1952 in Ft. Lewis, Washington, and grew up in California.
