Meccore Quartet US Tour

Winner of the 2nd prize at the 2012 London International String Quartet Competition, the Meccore String Quartet from Poland will perform across the US throughout the month of February. Their programs will include Karol Szymanowski’s String Quartet no. 1—an uncanny blend of late German romanticism, impressionism, and the avant-garde—and Szymon Laks’s Quartet no. 3 on Polish Themes, as well as works by Brett Dean, Mozart, Debussy, Beethoven, and Czajkowski. The Meccore Quartet is comprised of violinists Wojciech Koprowski and Jarosław Nadrzycki, violist Michał Bryła and cellist Karol Marianowski.

Established in 2007, the Meccore String Quartet is acclaimed for its breathtaking performances and visionary interpretations. The quartet has received top prizes at the 9th Premio Paolo Borciani Competition, the 2010 International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden, Germany and the 2009 Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition. The Quartet have given performances at major European music festivals, such as Rheingau, Mecklemburg Vorpommern, the Ludwig van Beethoven Spring Festival, Budapest Spring and Heidelberg Frühling, and appeared in many prestigious concert halls, including Beethovenhaus in Bonn, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw and the Wigmore Hall in London. The Quartet has recorded with Bayerischer Rundfunk, Rai3, Radio Merkury and NDR. Since 2010, the Meccorre String Quartet has been hosting and organizing the International Chamber Music Festival Q’arto Mondi in Poznań, Poland, featuring top quartets from all over the world.
