Antonín Dvořák String Quartet no. 12, op. 96 ‘American
Pavel Haas String Quartet no. 2 ‘From the Monkey Mountains

Each day in Selected By a quartet will present two major works of its own choice in a one-hour performance without interval. The juxtaposition of the two pieces creates a strong contrast or tension, while in some cases their musical impact is reinforced by their relationship to each other.

Here we encounter two Czechs from two eras and two different environments. Dvořák was inspired by the melting pot of cultures in nineteenth-century America – in particular negro spirituals, which initially resulted in the work being nicknamed ‘Negro Quartet’ – while Haas was inspired by folk music from his homeland and jazz, during the lead-up to the Second World War.
