MF14 Pavel Haas Quartet

Warmth, intensity, and fearless confidence

Assembly Rooms

Ranked by BBC Music Magazine as one of the 10 greatest string quartets of all time, the Czech ensemble undoubtedly represents the finest of their homeland’s musical tradition: warmth, intensity, sonorousness and fearless confidence.

Their Bath programme starts with Haydn’s ambitious String Quartet Op 76 No 1, fiery, inventive and deviating from the standard sonata form. Then, via Prokofiev’s wartime second string quartet with its exotic folk influences from the Kabardino- Balkar region of the Caucasus to which the composer was evacuated in 1941, before finally to Schubert’s posthumously published lyrical final quartet. A cleverly textured programme sure to fascinate and delight.
