Peter Napret shared this recording of a performance by the Slovenian Zither Quartet. Peter is the performer standing second from the left and also plays the violin. The recording is a little under an hour, so get comfortable and enjoy the show. :)

Thanks for posting this, Dave. That was great playing. I especially love their use of dynamics which was so effective and so well performed. All of the players play with admirable clarity and I noticed that they all use their thumbs in both directions. This is something I've been doing for decades but I didn't know if anyone else had employed the practice. I learned a lot watching these fine players. I'll be viewing this again!
