The Lutosławski Quartet was founded in 2007 and has appeared at many festivals, including in Poland, Berlin, Brussels, Ankara and Ghent. In 2013 the quartet was invited to the Hong Kong Arts Festival, and to Tongyeong in South Korea, Tokyo, Singapore, Hangzhou and Beijing, as well as for concerts in Sofia, Athens and Thessaloniki. The quartet has given concerts with Andrzej Bauer, Bruno Canino, Paul Gulda, the Silesian Quartet, the Royal String Quartet, Tomasz Strahl, Ryszard Groblewski, Nicholas Daniel, Eugen Indijc, Garrick Ohlsson and Michel Lethiec, as well as outstanding jazz players such as Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Benoit Delbecq and Uri Caine. They have also performed Bohuslav Martinů’s and Arnold Schoenberg’s concertos for quartet and orchestra under Jacek Kaspszyk’s baton. Together with Krzysztof Jakowicz and Andrzej Bauer, they have made the first recording of Witold Lutosławski’s complete chamber music for the Accord label, winning the 2009 Fryderyk Award nomination. In 2010 they recorded quartets by Karol Szymanowski, Dmitry Shostakovich and Marcin Markowicz for their debut solo album. Other recordings include Lutoslawski’s String Quartet and Paweł Mykietyn’s String Quartet No. 2. The Lutosławski Quartet repertoire includes classical music, as well as recently commissioned pieces, and focuses on popularising Polish music, including works by Lutosławski, Bacewicz, Szymanowski, and compositions by one of the group members, Marcin Markowicz. The quartet works as one of the resident ensembles at the National Forum of Music.
