Live from Wigmore Hall in London, the Pavel Haas Quartet perform two highly personal and autobiographical works by Czech composers: Janacek's Second Quartet (Intimate Letters) reflects on his passionate but one-sided relationship with a younger woman; and Smetana's First Quartet (From My Life) details the emotional trauma of encroaching deafness. Presented by Fiona Talkington.
