Hailed as “the world’s most exciting string quartet” by Gramophone magazine, Prague’s Pavel Haas Quartet features two violins, a viola and violoncello. Thanks to its rich, vivid sound, the group has collected an array of awards including the top prize at the prestigious Paolo Borciani competition in Italy and Best Chamber Music Recording at the Gramophone Awards four times. Named after Pavel Haas, a Czech composer killed in Auschwitz, the musicians pay tribute to his memory.

Tuesday 10/20. $12-35, 7:30pm. Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 924-3376.
