Vítězslava Kaprálová (1915 - 1940) composed the three-movement String Quartet opus 8 in summer 1935 almost entirely during her holiday sojourn at a place she liked most: in a small village called Three Wells (Tři Studně) amidst the beautiful countryside of the Czech-Moravian Highlands.

The music of the quartet reflects the joy and self-assurance stemming from the recent success of her graduate's concert in Brno; she wrote as she felt. The nature of the piece is that of an undisturbed and worriless atmosphere of relaxation. It is an immediate reaction to the composer's life experiences; a bridge that unites the school and study period and the real life of an artist.
