About the Pavel haas quartet
The Pavel Haas Quartet has been called “the world’s most exciting string quartet” (Gramophone). Since winning the Paolo Borciani competition in Italy in spring 2005, they have established themselves as one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles and recording six award-winning CDs. Based in Prague, the quartet has performed at virtually all the world’s most prestigious concert halls including the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, London’s Wigmore Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein and New York’s Carnegie Hall. The Quartet took part in the BBC New Generation Artists scheme between 2007-2009, and in 2010 was awarded the Special Ensemble Scholarship of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.
