Since its origin the Quasars Ensemble, a renowned Slovak instrumental body, has revitalized a huge quantity of domestic music, making the classical 20th century music accessible to the audience at home as well as abroad, and creating interesting programe contexts. It has earned appreciation for its immaculate performing qualities, it was recently awarded the prestigious Crystal Wing award in the category music for 2013. The retrospective anthology of crucial works of the Slovak music for chamber ensemble cross the generation of Slovak modern, avant-garde and post-modern music is in itself a deep probe into the development of Slovak music.
