The Polish Cello Quartet will perform on 15 January 2020 at 7.00 p.m. at the Mieczysław Karłowicz Philharmonic in Szczecin.
Polish Cello Quartet was formed in 2011 on the initiative of Tomasz Daroch, Wojciech Fudala, Krzysztof Karpeta and Adam Krzeszowiec – four cellists of the new generation. The four artists have decided to initiate a chamber music group to show and share the unique and original sound of the cello quartet. In the way they perform, the artists have chosen a democratic model of cooperation. Within the group they exchange parts of music pieces they play – which allows to alter the sound and interpretation of the pieces.
The musicians of PCQ had an honour and privilege to acquire their skills from leading Polish cello musicians such as Paweł Głombik and Stanisław Firlej, and also from world-leading professors such as Frans Helmerson, Gary Hoffman, Michael Flaksman, Jelena Očić, Julius Berger and Jeroen Reuling. They have gained their experience in many European cultural centers (Cologne, Mannheim and Brussels). Each of the artists has often been awarded in solo and chamber performances. All PCQ members lead cello classes at renowned Polish Music Academies. Since 2014 Polish Cello Quartet is a ensemble in residence at the National Forum of Music in Wrocław.
The repertoire of the Polish Cello Quartet includes primarily works originally composed for cello quartet. The programme of the concert in Szczecin will feature Cello-Quartet, Op. 44 by Marinus de Jong, Fantasie rhapsodique, Op. 21 by Jean Absil, Offenbachiana II by Piotr Moss, Deux mouvements pour quatuor de violoncelles by Aleksander Tansman, and Ballade and Rhapsody for four cellos by Kazimierz Wiłkomirski.
