On February 13, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., the violin quartet Violinofonica will perform at the headquarters of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice as part of the concert series "The Youth's Wednesday".
Violinofnica Violin Quartet was founded in January 2017 by violinist Agnieszka Marucha, along with the most talented students of her class at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music. The ensemble aims to promote a rare repertoire for 4 violins and to help young violin players to gain stage experience. In the artistic season of 2018/2019, the quartet performed at the Ryszard Kapuściński awards ceremony in Warsaw, the Music Salon in Suwałki and the Korean Institute in Warsaw. In July 2018, the quartet debuted abroad during the Bosa Antica Festival in Italy.
The ensemble performs a wide repertoire (from baroque to the latest music), however its core is Polish music, including specifically commissioned works. Among them we will find Silesian Melodies by Weronika Olbrot and Migotanie by Iwona Kisiel, both composed in 2018. These works, which will be performed on February 13 in Katowice, had their world premiere in Italy during the 11th International Festival of Chamber Music of Bosa Antica. In addition, in the band's interpretation, we will listen to Duets on folk themes for two violins and Quartet for four violins by Grażyna Bacewicz, Four Silesian melodies by Witold Lutosławski and works by Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, Georg Friedrich Telemann and Jacob Dont.
