Instruments: Cello | Strings

Since 2004, the cellist Peter Jarůšek has been a member of the Pavel Haas Quartet, which had been founded two years earlier by his wife Veronika Jarůšková.

In 2005, the quartet, one of today’s most acclaimed chamber ensembles worldwide, was victorious at the prestigious Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and at the Prague Spring International Competition. A year later, the quartet became part of the “BBC New Generation Artists” project in London, and at the same time the European Concert Hall Organisation named them as one of its “Rising Stars”.

So far, the quartet has made eight CDs for the Supraphon label. All of their albums have won important international prizes: the Diapason d’Or de l’année, the BBC Music Magazine Award twice, and the Gramophone Award six times.

Besides playing in the quartet, Peter Jarůšek also appears regularly at the most renowned concert halls and festivals, and he is a sought-after instructor at chamber music masterclasses around the world.
