Pavel Haas Quartet
August 23 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Czech ensemble the Pavel Haas Quartet counts among classical music’s most distinctive chamber groups. It has a particular passion for the music of central Europe, but its repertoire stretches across boundaries and times.
Following the breezy wit of Haydn’s sunny G major Quartet, Op 76 No 1, the Pavel Haas players perform the 1947 Quartet No 7 by their compatriot Martinů. With its glowing harmonies and bristling rhythms, it’s a full-blooded celebration of his Czech homeland, written after the composer had fled Nazi persecution for the USA.
The Quartet concludes its recital with what many consider one of the greatest chamber works ever written. Schubert’s G major Quartet, D887, is music on a symphonic scale, a vast musical panorama of transcendental visions and melodies.
