Concert: Pavel Haas Quartet


Location: Leighton Concert Hall, DPAC

Sporting Gramophone's Best Chamber Music and Album of the Year recordings, it is little wonder The London Times calls the Prague-based Pavel Hass Quartet "the world's most exciting string quartet." Take your musical appreciation to the next level as the ensemble renders three probing, daring works in exquisite form, beginning with a vibrant and eerie sound world of buzzing and modal explosions in Leoš Janáček's Kreutzer Sonata and also including Antonin Dvořák’s Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 51 and Beethoven’s Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2 “Razumovsky,” which was commissioned by the Russian ambassador in Vienna. (Student tickets cost $15.)
