The Pavel Haas Quartet's reputation speaks for itself. With six Gramophone Awards and two BBC Music Magazine Awards under its belt, the Czech-Slovak ensemble consistently receives five-star reviews from critics and audiences alike. As one of the world's leading contemporary chamber groups, the Quartet is committed to championing composers from Eastern Europe. "In their native repertoire," The Sunday Times wrote in its review of the ensemble's recording of Smetana, "they are well nigh incomparable." The Quartet returns to Duke Performances with a program permeated with despair and tragedy. The ensemble pairs Beethoven's Quartet in F Minor with Martinů's Seventh. No ensemble is better qualified to unravel these works than the Pavel Haas Quartet.
