About This Performance

The Czech Pavel Haas Quartet combines the lush sound and rhythm of the Bohemian quartet tradition with the transparency and structural awareness of modern European quartet playing. The intertwining of these two seemingly-opposed cultures will be immediately apparent in an all-Czech first half that features Dvorák’s intimate, inward-looking Ninth Quartet and Martinů’s third–works that themselves merge traditional Czech dance and folk rhythms with classical forms in the Austro-German tradition.

Martinů: Quartet No. 3
Dvořák: Quartet in D Minor, Op. 34
Beethoven: Quartet in E Minor, Op. 59, No. 2
