RECORDING OF THE YEAR 2011

Throughout, their understanding of the musical argument is exemplary...at every stage the performers respond with both passion and a clear feeling for musical line...In truth, there are so many details that delight the ear it would be almost impossible to list the all ***** --BBC Music Magazine

The Pavel Haas players revel in the turbulence of the opening movement, but they savour the lyricism of the beautiful adagio, the rhythmic energy of the scherzo and the exuberance of the finale s fiery allegro. Their account of the American Quartet belongs alongside the greatest performances on disc. In this repertoire, they are simply matchless today. ***** --The Sunday Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful *and* exciting 18 May 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
The only version of Op. 106 I had was the Lindsays, which I don't like much - it's quite exciting, but, for me, lacking in beauty.

BBC Radio 3 'building a library' recently pickled out the Pavel Haas as the best version of Op. 106. They have the excitement and drive of the Lindsay's, but also sound very beautiful in the slow passages. The Pavel Haas version of the 'American' is also worth the purchase, but not as convincing as Op.106. For me, the Lindsays are slightly better in the 'American'.

In seeking out the Pavel Haas on Amazon I spotted the Stamitz set for a ridiculously low price and bought that instead! But I found their versions of Op. 106 and Op.96 lacking the excitement and intensity of the Pavel Haas, while the Pavel Haas match them in beauty.

So, in the end , I had to get the Pavel Haas CD. Their mix of dynamism and beauty is not to be missed in Op. 106. If you are tempted to seek out more Dvorak string quartets, try the Stamitz if you value languid beauty above rip-roaring excitement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves the plaudits. 18 Nov 2011
By ik_49
Format:Audio CD
This disc has won the gramaphone award and once you've listened to it you'll understand why. The disc couples two of Dvorak's later string quartets, the well known "American" no.12 with it's wonderful slow movement and no.13 in G. I bought this disc because I love Dvorak's chamber music and I wasn't disappointed. It's not just the quality of Dvorak's writing (though that in itself would be justification for this purchase) but it's the sublime playing of the exciting Pavel Haas Quartet that makes you want to listen again and again. Just as a footnote, the disk is also superbly packaged with a colourful and informative booklet.

No wonder this is an award winning disc. Superb performances of both quartets. Would probably be my first recommendation for these beatiful works. Unmissable.
