Pavel Haas Quartet
Dvořák and Smetana
- Pavel Haas Quartet

A summer spent in Iowa’s backwoods helped ease Dvořák’s homesickness and inspire his ‘American’ Quartet, written during the Czech composer’s time in the United States.
The Pavel Haas Quartet pairs the work with another profoundly personal score, Smetana’s autobiographical ‘From my life’.

- String Quartet in F major Op. 96 'American'
