Silesian Quartet

The Silesian Quartet, winner of multiple awards and distinctions both in its native Poland and abroad, is one of the country’s leading chamber music ensembles. Its members – Szymon Krzeszowiec and Arkadiusz Kubica on violin, Lukasz Syrnicki on viola, and Piotr Janosik on cello – spent the early years of their career developing their abilities under the supervision of musicians from such quartets as the LaSalle, Amadeus, Juilliard, Smetana, and Alban Berg string quartets. Today, the ensemble enjoys international renown, giving concerts throughout the world. It has performed in such famous venues as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Wiener Konzerthaus, deSingel in Antwerp, Berliner Schauspielhaus, Tivoli in Copenhagen, Salle Pleyel in Paris, Carnegie Hall in New York, Jordan Hall in Boston, Hoam Art Hall in Seoul, and Sala de las Bellas Artes in Mexico City. The Quartet performs the canon of great chamber music masterpieces, but also devotes special attention to the music of our time. Its extensive discography includes recordings of music from many different eras, with particular emphasis on Polish music from the last three decades. Among its more than forty CDs, its set of Bacewicz’s complete string quartets on Chandos won the Gramophone Award in the chamber music category in 2017 and three have won the Fryderyk Award of the Polish Phonographic Academy for the Best Chamber Music Album. For twenty-five years, ‘The Silesian Quartet and Its Guests’ International Chamber Music Festival, organised annually by the Quartet, has attracted dozens of outstanding Polish and foreign artists.
