Portsmouth Chamber Music Series 2021-22

Like Martin Roscoe, the Pražák Quartet was due to perform for us two seasons ago.

Their only previous visit to Portsmouth was in the second season of these concerts, way back in January 2006 when concerts were in the Cathedral.

Erwin Schulhoff was born in Prague in 1894, and was strongly influenced by jazz idioms and rhythms, this quartet dating from 1924. Beethoven’s ‘Harp’ quartet needs little introduction, its nickname deriving from the harp‐like pizzicatos of the first movement. Dvořák’s penultimate quartet is his finest, with great energy in the outer movements, and a most sublime slow movement.
