Szczecin | Krzysztof Penderekic's works arranged for string quartet

ASQKrzysztof Penderecki's works in unusual arrangements for string quartet will be performed by the Atom String Quartet during a concert in the Espressivo series on 19 October 2020 at 7.00 p.m. at the Mieczysław Karłowicz Philharmonic in Szczecin. The concert will be broadcast live at http://livefilharmonia.szczecin.pl/.

Not only is Atom String Quartet one of the most important Polish string quartets, but also one of the most befriended ensembles of the Szczecin Filharmonic. The fruit of this collaboration is the album Penderecki – recorded in the Szczecin Philharmonic and also released by the institution. The ensemble reached for the music of Krzysztof Penderecki – the greatest Polish composer of our time, who passed away in March this year.

Chamber and solo works for wind instruments from the Master's youthful period, which are interspersed with Three pieces in the old style – based on Penderecki's music to The Saragossa Manuscript– constitute the axis of the programme. Classical and avant-garde music is mixed jazz and experimental style.
