Pavel Haas Quartet

This terrific young quartet takes its name from the Czech composer Pavel Haas, a pupil of Leoš Janáček, who was deported from Czechoslovakia and died in Auschwitz. In 2007 the Quartet was awarded the Gramophone Award for chamber music and also named Newcomer of the Year in the BBC Music Magazine Awards. Specialising in the music of Czech composers, for their Festival debut the Pavel Haas Quartet sets Janáček's heartfelt second quartet alongside Haas's own third quartet with its intense lyricism and influences of Moravian folk music.
