Pavel Fischer speaker

Adam Quartet (Conservatorium van Amsterdam)

The programme will include fragments and movements of Smetana’s second string quartet, Dvořák’s American Quartet, and Pavel Haas’s second string quartet.

The string quartet has been in existence for two and a half centuries so far. All these years the genre has been in contact with other cultures, languages, art forms and styles. Extending String Quartets lies somewhere between a concert, lecture-recital and crossover; it creates and rediscovers these connections. From American West Coast composers to encounters between East and West; from pop music to video art – all the boundaries are explored, expanded and blurred in the process.

Language and music are indivisibly linked – perhaps even to the extent of being a unified whole. Without becoming academic, the founder of the Škampa Quartet and teacher Pavel Fischer delves into a major work of the string quartet canon, revealing the relationship between Czech music and the Czech language. Within this context, the Adam Quartet (Conservatorium van Amsterdam) will perform movements and fragments of all the Czech music heard throughout this festival.

NB This programme will be presented in English.
