Release Date:10/19/2018;Notes:Seven years after their triumph with quartets by Dvorák, the Pavel Haas Quartet are making a triumphant return to Dvorák's music. For the recording of the quintets, they have invited two guests: the pianist Boris Giltburg (winner of the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition) and Pavel Nikl, a founding member of the Pavel Haas Quartet. Dvorák composed his Second Piano Quintet at his beloved summer residence Vysoká late in the summer of 1887. The famed critic Eduard Hanslick received the work's performance in Vienna enthusiastically: "It is one of his most beautiful works. It is real Dvorák." The String Quintet, Op. 97, although younger by just six years, represents an entirely "different Dvorák". After the New World Symphony and the American Quartet, it is Dvorák's third work composed while in North America. And what did Hanslick have to say this time? "It is perhaps the simplest, most natural, and happiest music composed since the days of Haydn." The degree to which the Pavel Haas Quartet feels at home with Dvorák's music is shown by the many awards their recordings have received (Diapason d'Or, BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Month, Gramophone Award nomination). "Another Pavel Haas Quartet [album], another triumph." (Gramophone);Special Attributes:2 PACK
