We are happy to welcome back the exciting Pavel Haas Quartet. Of the great younger quartets today, they are the only ones we know that continue the burnished sound of the Bohemian tradition. In 2011, the group won the prestigious Recording of the Year award from Gramophone Magazine. The programme features works from three composers with different backgrounds and styles, and will highlight the ensemble’s heightened ability to communicate with each other, with audience-pleasing energy.
