- Pavel Haas Quartet
- Pavel Nikl viola
Written in 1920 to enliven the famous Flonzaley Quartet’s repertoire, Stravinsky’s brief Concertino revels in the contrasts and tension between two different scales.
It prefaces the Pavel Haas Quartet’s exploration of Ravel’s String Quartet in F, an emblem of poise and playfulness, and Dvořák’s sonorous ‘viola quintet’, written in the summer of 1893 in Spillville, Iowa.
