Founded in 1995, the Szymanowski Quartet quickly developed into one of the most remarkable international string quartets of its generation. Its sophisticated performances present a perfect balance between intellect and passion, characteristics with which the Szymanowski Quartet captivates its audiences. The Quartet’s high standard has been confirmed by numerous awards and distinctions such as at the Melbourne, Osaka and the Florence International Chamber Music Competitions. The Szymanowski Quartet participated in the BBC’s New Generation Artists scheme, and was honored by the Karol Szymanowski Foundation in Warsaw with the renowned Szymanowski Award, the only time it was ever given to a string quartet. To date, the Quartet has performed at numerous major concert halls such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Wigmore Hall in London, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Vienna Musikverein , the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig and the Grünewald Hall in Stockholm. The Quartet tours the USA and Canada every year. In 2008 the Quartet founded the Lviv Chamber Music Festival in a city on the border between Ukraine and Poland whose historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the aim to actively support cultural exchange.
