Dmitri Shostakovich String Quartet no. 2, op. 68
Antonín Dvořák String Sextet, op. 48

Shostakovich’s second string quartet opens in a restless mood – with a sense of seeking and urgency. However, in the second movement he creates a feeling of repose with his Shakespearean monologues for the first violin, accompanied by reverential chords. Providing a striking contrast, Dvořák’s sextet overflows with Czech folklore. The two composers interpret the same tonality – A major – in a totally different fashion: one in a weighty and serious way, the other graceful and joyful.

The Pavel Haas Quartet enjoys expanding the string quartet’s limits to explore other chamber music forms. Together with John Myerschough and Hélène Clément from the Doric String Quartet, they add an extra dimension to the String Quartet Biennale’s palette with Dvořák’s sextet.

The pre-concert talk will be given by Leo Samama at 7.15 pm in the Kleine zaal.
