Shostakovich 2 / 7 / 8
In May, the Pavel Haas Quartet was making a new recording. Their eighth, studio album will feature Dmitry Shostakovich’s String Quartets Nos. 2, 7 and 8. Peter Jarůšek said: “We have always wanted to record Shostakovich’s quartets, yet, for various reasons, have not got around to it. So we are happy that we will finally be able to make our dream come true. The new album will be in stark contrast to our previous, for the most part sun-drenched recordings. Music lovers can definitely look forward to it, as Shostakovich’s works are very close to our hearts.”
The album will be released in October 2019 on Supraphon.
