Description: One of the ripest fruits of his late-life infatuation with Kamila Stösslová, the Intimate Letters quartet was originally meant to be played with a viola d'amore and the instrument was especially to represent Janacek's consuming (if unrequited) love for her. Performance difficulies scotched this plan in 1928 but the original version has now been printed by Bärenreiter and recorded here. Quatuor Diotima, Garth Knox (viola d'amore).
