The String Quartets are among my favourite Janácek's chamber works along with In the Mists, especially the String Quartet No. 1; they are quite modern in their contrasting moods, virtuosity and swift changes of rhythms and dynamics, but with so mesmerizing and beautifully evocative atmospheres anyway; there's also a haunting, but marvelous use of the ostinato which deeply captures and gives a powerful impression of how vivid and intense the emotions evoked by the music are.
I have the only two recordings, the Gabrieli String Quartet and the Takàcs Quartet, and those are quite beautiful in my opinion.
