Revered across the globe for its richness of timbre, infectious passion and intuitive rapport, the Pavel Haas Quartet is firmly established as one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles. It performs at the world’s most prestigious venues, including Wigmore Hall, London; Philharmonie and Konzerthaus, Berlin; Musikverein, Vienna; Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg; Concertgebouw and Muziekgebouw, Amsterdam; Tonhalle, Zürich; Théâtre de la Ville, Paris; Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Rome; BOZAR, Brussels; NCPA, Beijing; LG Arts Centre, Seoul; and Carnegie Hall, New York. In the 2023-24 season, the Quartet returns to Wigmore Hall, Rudolfinum Prague, Teatro La Fenice, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Göteborgs Konserthus, National Concert Hall Dublin, Muziekgebouw Amsterdam and Philharmonie Luxembourg.

Since September 2022, the Pavel Haas Quartet has been Artist-in-Residence at the Dvořák Prague Festival and curates the chamber music concerts, including programming all the Dvořák String Quartets and chamber music works over three seasons.

An exclusive recording artist with Supraphon, the Quartet has won five Gramophone Awards, Gramophone Recording of the Year and numerous other accolades for their recordings. Their most recent album of Brahms Viola and Piano Quintets with Boris Giltburg and their former member, Pavel Nikl, was released to critical acclaim in May 2022 and was described as ‘radiant and vivacious’ by The Strad.

The Quartet is based in Prague and studied with the late Milan Skampa, the legendary violist of the Smetana Quartet. They take their name from the Czech-Jewish composer Pavel Haas (1899-1944) who was imprisoned at Theresienstadt in 1941 and tragically died at Auschwitz three years later. His legacy includes three wonderful string quartets.
