Pavel Haas Quartet
Monday, March 31, 2014
One of the great chamber music ensembles of our time according to The Times of London, this award-winning Czech quartet returns to SF Performances after its Bay Area debut in 2009 when it was a surprise hit of the season. The Haas’ artists bring formidable technique and an unusually acute expressiveness to their performances and are regarded as second-to-none in playing eastern European repertory including Dvořák and Janáček.

DVOŘÁK: Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Opus 51
