Dvořák String Quartet No 13 in G major, Op 106

“In this repertoire, they are simply matchless today” said the Sunday Times of the Pavel Haas Quartet’s recording of Dvořák. They’ve been ranked in the Top 10 greatest string quartets of all time by the BBC Music magazine, alongside the Amadeus, Borodin and Alban Berg Quartets. In their early years they were ECHO Rising Stars and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, and won the first of six Gramophone Awards for their first CD.

Dvořák started his G major Quartet just before leaving New York and it was the first piece he completed when he arrived back in Prague. A close cousin of the ‘American’ Quartet, it is shot through with the same rhythmic vitality and Bohemian spirit. The dramatic intensity is palpable in Schubert’s last string quartet, one of several landmark pieces composed at lightning speed in the last years of his life. The Pavel Haas Quartet won’t hold back: “At times it is hard to believe you are in the presence of only four players, so intense is the sound” (Gramophone).
