Pavel Haas Quartet

Tchaikovsky and Czech composers with a Czech quartet.

Pavel Haas Quartet is one of Europe’s leading string quartets. They are active in Prague and have a special focus on Czech and Slovak music. At this concert, Czech Bohuslav Martinu’s atmospheric second string quartet will therefore be accompanied by a piece from fellow countryman Erwin Schulhoff. We will hear his rhythmically vital first string quartet, which is also pleasantly tinged with warm melodies and inviting tones.

Many people consider Tchaikovsky’s third string quartet to be his best. And in fact, it too has a Czech connection. Friend and colleague at the Moscow Conservatory, Czech violinist Ferdinand Laub, had passed away and Tchaikovsky composed this elegy as a tribute.

This concert begins with music by Slovakian L'ubica Cekovská. She has garnered international acclaim for her opera Dorian Gray, based on Oscar Wilde’s popular story, but she is not limited by genre and has also composed music for a long list of movies. The Pavel Haas Quartet performed the world premiere of A Midsummer Quartet in 2016.
