Resonus is pleased to present this significant new recording of vocal works by the early-twentieth century Czech composer, Pavel Haas.

Featuring four song cycles composed by Haas at various stages in his life, this captivating album includes the world premiere recording of Fata Morgana, Op. 6 – Haas’s first major work composed, following studies with Leoš Janáček, in 1922.

Pianist Lada Valešová is joined by an exceptional array of singers as well as the acclaimed Navarra Quartet in a vivid portrait of this composer.

'Pianist-musicologist Lada Valesova has gathered together a stellar group of young singers and musicians [...] From joy to despair, every emotion is here in subtle colours; a legacy of great human and musical worth.'
BBC Music Magazine (Instrumental Choice, 5 stars performance & sound)

BBC Music Magazine (Instrumental Choice, 5 stars performance & sound)

'[...] we now recognise [Haas] as a major and unique musical voice, something this first recording of Fata Morgana makes abundantly clear. Tenor Nicky Spence, soprano Anita Watson, and the Navarra Quartet are outstanding, and Resonus's recording quality is expectionally good'
The Yorkshire Post

'Spence sings highly effectively and the Navarra Quartet really makes the most of its numerous opportunities for sensuality. [...] this is a well selected disc, bringing to the table two of Haas’ most attractive cycles and that première recording. It sits splendidly in the current discography.'
