Pavel Haas Quartet

Plays Schubert, Ravel & Shostakovich

One of the world’s most exciting string quartets perform two landmark works in the repertoire – Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde’ and Ravel’s String Quartet.

Pavel Haas Quartet

Shostakovich String Quartet No 7
Schubert String Quartet No 13 in A minor D804 ‘Rosamunde’
Ravel String Quartet 

One of the world’s most exciting string quartets, Czech foursome the Pavel Haas Quartet more than lives up to that description, playing with a remarkable combination of polished refinement and startling spontaneity.

The Quartet brings together extraordinary passion, commanding insights and an almost orchestral richness – the full-blooded sound of Bohemia combined with a searing dramatic intensity.

The remarkably concentrated expression of Shostakovich’s brief but brooding Seventh Quartet open their wide-ranging International Festival recital, which climaxes with the exquisite radiance of Ravel’s colourful, witty Quartet.

In between, the effortless melodies of Schubert’s deeply lyrical yet introspective ‘Rosamunde’ Quartet.
