With their last CD newly shortlisted for yet another Gramophone Award, The Pavel Haas Quartet have started their new season with a concert at the Edinburgh Festival, playing Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 7, Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde’ Quartet and the Ravel Quartet. You can listen for another four weeks at the BBC site, here. They are in terrific form – who would guess that they have only been playing with their new violist for half a year? – and the Schubert here (starting at 18.45) is quite exceptional, even better I think than when I last heard them play it in London. Catch this concert while you can!
