What’s more, 15 years of the Kwartesencja festival, which brings together musicians who, in their ambitious undertaking, know no genre constraints. Technical precision, clarity of the musical form and impeccable style are the foundations, on which the Royal String Quartet have been building their reputation. The RSQ has become one of the leading ambassadors of the Polish culture.
The programme of their Warsaw concert will include: String Quartet No. 7 in F-sharp minor, Op. 108 by Dmitri Shostakovich, String Quartet in F major, Op. 96 by Antonín Dvořák, and String Quartet No. 4 by Grażyna Bacewicz, whose 110th birthday anniversary is celebrated this year.
