Beautiful concert halls, prestigious festivals, world tours
The Pavel Haas Quartet launched the 2017/18 season with three concerts in September together with the Essener Philharmoniker, conducted by Tomáš Netopil, first in Essen and subsequently at the Dvořák Prague festival at the Rudolfinum hall. In October, they are scheduled to return to Wigmore Hall in London, where this time, together with Pavel Nikl, their friend and former colleague, they will perform Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 3 in E flat major, the “American”. ”We are always happy to return to Wigmore Hall, as it is a venue harbouring a magical atmosphere, as well as a place with an exceptionally homely, kind milieu,” Veronika Jarůšková pointed out. In November, the Pavel Haas Quartet and the pianist Boris Giltburg will visit Germany, where within four concerts they will perform Dvořák’s Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major and Brahms’s Piano Quintet in F minor. Their next stop will be the renowned Royal Concertgebouw hall in Amsterdam, and in December the PHQ will be appearing in Bern, Switzerland, and elsewhere.
In 2018, the ensemble will give concerts at prominent halls in Europe, including the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the Musikverein in Vienna, following which they will fly off to tour South Korea, China and Taiwan. The Pavel Haas Quartet will round off their current concert season in June at the Smetana’s Litomyšl festival.
