Pavel Haas Quartet "centenary" concert

Pavel Haas was the most talented pupil of the revolutionary modernist composer Leoš Janáček. Like many others, he perished in a concentration camp during the Second World War. With his generation, the hopes of the interwar era lived and died. His name was taken by the Pavel Haas Quartet, one of the fines examples of the famous tradition of Czech string quartets. Within their repertory, Leoš Janáček plays a prominent role.

Pavel Haas Quartet has chosen two declarations of love, one by Dvořák, to his homeland after spending three years in the United States, the other by Janáček, which was dedicated to Kamila Stosslova, the love of his life and his muse. Both men demonstrate the extent of their artistry in these compositions: the former in a very lyrical style while the latter is more tempestuous. This concert celebrates the centenary of Czech and Slovak independence through their music.

The Pavel Haas Quartet was founded in 2002 by the violinist Veronika Jarůšková and the violist Pavel Nikl, who was a member of the ensemble until 2016, when he left due to family reasons. Following their victory in the Prague Spring Festival Competition and Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy in 2005, the Pavel Haas Quartet soon established themselves as one of the world’s most exciting contemporary chamber ensembles. Performing at the most renowned concert venues around the globe, the PHQ have to date recorded six critically acclaimed CDs, which have received numerous prestigious awards. The ensemble members studied with Milan Škampa, the legendary violist of the Smetana Quartet.

In the 2018/19 season the Quartet will perform three concerts at the Rudolfinum Hall in Prague as artist-in-residence of the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Music Society. They will return to the Edinburgh International, Schubertiade and East Neuk Festivals as well as to the Wigmore Hall, Paris Théâtre de la Ville, Brussels Bozar, Munich Herkulessal, Rotterdam's De Doelen, Florence’s Teatro della Pergola, Philharmonie Essen, the Oslo Quartet Series and tour to the US and Canada.
