    I just recieved a email from my sister about this famous Quartet and it sparked my interest because my last name is Prazak. I've been searching all over for information and I just had a few questions.

    First off, how is Prazak actually pronounced? I pronounce it as pray-zak, but I've always wondered how it is actually said.

    Secondly, I am planning on studying abroad in Prague next semester and I read somewhere that Prazak actually means 'an inhabitant of Prague'. Is that actually true? Is it a really common name in Prague?

    Thirdly, is there anything in Prague or the Czech Republic in general that has any information on the Prazak Quartet? I would absolutely love to see anything that pertains to the quartet during my stay in Prague. Any museums, auditoriums, etc. would be what I'm looking for. Or a good website where I could actually listen to some of their music because I haven't been able to find any as of yet.

    Any information on my last name or the quartet is greatly appreciated. I couldn't be more excited to visit Prague after all this history I've stumbled upon. I'd love to find out more, but I'm at a dead end on where to look since I've exhausted the google searches. Thank you in advance!

    Yes, it is.

    Pražák is common Czech name, not only in Prague. Part of my mother's family are Prazaks :)

    Try look for "Pražákovo kvarteto" - it's Czech name of group.

    I'm not czech but by the way eso spelled it, it's probably pronounced pra (short a) zhak (like shock the vowel is prolonged a little). [prazhaak]
