LSO ST LUKES - Pavel Haas series (rpt)

Katie Derham presents the Pavel Haas Quartet performing at LSO St Luke's in London. Dvorak: Quartet No 12 (American); String Quintet No 3 in E flat (Krzystof Chorzelski: viola).

The Pavel Haas Quartet are named after a young Czech composer who was interned by the Nazis in the the infamous "Theresienstadt" concentration camp. The Pavel Haas Quartet took part in the BBC's New Generation Artist Scheme and are now based in Prague, from where they are much in demand worldwide, and they have built a reputation for the highest level of quartet playing.

In November 2010 the quartet played four concerts at LSO St. Luke's in London, and this, the first of them pairs two works by their countryman Dvorak - the best known of his quartets - the "American" and the string quintet - also written on that same American trip.

In the String Quintet, the additional viola is Krzystof Chorzelski who is the viola player with the Belcea Quartet.

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova & Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek.

The performances are presented by Katie Derham
