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.
