Four Strings Quartet will perform at the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Concert Hall in Katowice on 21 November 2011 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the "NOSPR Chamber Ensembles" concert series.
The ensemble was formed in 2004 on the initiative of Lucyna Fiedukiewicz and consists mainly of musicians of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice. The quartet performs works from different periods – from baroque to modern times. Frequent cooperation with outstanding world-class artists gave the musicians the opportunity to shape their own musical personality while learning from masters and broadening their horizons. The quartet's characteristics are ingenuity, individuality and temperament. The Four Strings Quartet won the 2009 Grand Prix in the 6th edition of the 'Forgotten Polish Music' Competition organized by the Acte Prealable publishing house. They recorded six albums with music by Zygmunt Noskowski, Władysław Żeleński, Witold Maliszewski, and Eugeniusz Morawski.
During the upcoming concert they will perfom the String quartet in D minor, Op. 9 No. 1 and Vis-à-vis, a tram duet for violin and cello by Zygmunt Noskowski, Variations on original theme for string quartet in G minor, Op. 21 by Władysław Żeleński and Jazz Etude for string quartet by Henryk Czyż.
