« All Events

The Pavel Haas Quartet has been called “the world’s most exciting string quartet” (Gramophone) and is revered across the globe for its richness of timbre, infectious passion, and intuitive rapport. The group takes its name from the Czech composer Pavel Haas, who died at Auschwitz in 1944 and whose legacy includes three enduring string quartets. The ensemble’s first performance at UGA features three prominent Central European composers: Antonín Dvořák, Josef Suk (Dvořák’s protégé and son-in-law), and Austrian Erich Korngold (one of the most influential Hollywood composers).

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
