Based in Prague, the Pavel Haas Quartet
has studied with some of the masters of the quartet world: Quartetto Italiano, Quatuor Mosaiques, Borodin Quartet and Amadeus Quartet. In spring 2005 the Pavel Haas Quartet won the Paolo Borciani Competition in Italy, and were launched onto the international stage. The Quartet has toured extensively in Europe, and in 2008-9 the Pavel Haas Quartet embarked on major tours of Australia, the USA and Japan, as well as returning to the UK and Germany.
Performing nearly a hundred concerts each season since their inception, the Quartet is gaining an international following that has led to such awards as the Paolo Borciani competition in Italy in 2005, the ECHO Rising Stars from the Cologne Philharmonic and the BBC New Generation Artists for 2007-2009. The Pavel Haas Quartet has released several recordings that include Haas, Janacek, and Beethoven. Their next disc on the Supraphon label will be a recoding of Prokofiev’s String Quarts No. 1 and 2 and Sonata for Two Violins.
"Take note: this is one of the most polished and musically exciting young string quartets in the world today," according to the Washington Post
(2008) and the Telegraph
writes "the sense of totaled conviction is owned by this marvelous quartet. The leader Veronika Jaruskova plays with fiery energy and an intonation that never wavers; the cellist Peter Jarusek produces an immense tome with an appearance of almost nonchalant east. And all four play with a wonderful sense of unanimity."
The Houston Friends of Music is excited to bring this bright, young group to the Stude Concert Hall and to share its passion and vitality with the Houston audience.
