Pavel Haas Quartet
Archival Recording from Sunday, April 3, 2011


Audio Program

While we had looked forward to the return of the Pavel Haas Quartet, in partnership with pianist Boris Giltburg, this past March, we must now look ahead to their return in a future season. Since their formation in 2002, the PHQ has become one of Europe’s most exciting and beloved chamber ensembles. We’re delighted to be able to offer this archival recording of their San Francisco Performances debut concert from 2011.
