The second of Haas’s quartets was composed in 1925. Its unusual title is a joking reference to the Moravian Highlands; each movement describes experiences summer holidaymakers might encounter there. The group’s recording of the piece won it its first Gramophone Award in 2006, when it was also chosen as Disc of the Year by the Daily Telegraph.
