Pavel Haas Quartet

Pavel Haas Quartet

The Pavel Haas Quartet was founded in 2002 by the violinist Veronika Jaruskova and the violist Pavel Niki, who was a member of the ensemble until 2016. Yet their collaboration has continued - Pavel Niki has been the ensemble's permanent guest for string quintet performances.

Following their victory in the Prague Spring Festival Competition and Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy, in 2005, the Pavel Haas Quartet soon established itself as one of the world's most exciting contemporary chamber ensembles. Performing at the most renowned concert venues around the globe, the Quartet has recorded six critically acclaimed CDs to date which have received numerous prestigious awards. The ensemble members studied with Milan Skampa, the legendary violinist of the Smetana Quartet.

In the 2018/19 season, the Quartet will perform three concerts at the Rudolfinum Hall in Prague as artist-in-residence of the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Music Society. They will return to the Edinburgh International, Schubertiade and East Neuk Festivals and tour to the U.S. and Canada.

Programme includes: Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 7 / String Quartet No. 8; Dvorak: String Quartet No. 14 in A flat major, Op. 105, B. 193.
