Mostecká 48/14

Not far from the Charles Bridge, in Prague’s historic Malá Strana district, appears this plaque celebrating the life and work of Ladislav Zelenka (1881-1957), a cellist with the celebrated Czech Quartet.

Founded in 1892 by Josef Suk and other eminent musicians, the quartet was already well established when Zelenka joined it in 1914. Both Dvořák and Janáček composed pieces for the group; Zelenka continued to play with them until the quartet disbanded in 1934.
