One of Poland’s leading chamber music ensembles, the Silesian String Quartet, in its early years, developed under the supervision of musicians from such quartets as the LaSalle, Amadeus, Juilliard, Smetana and Alban Berg. Today it enjoys international fame, giving concerts throughout the world. It has performed in such venues as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Schauspielhaus in Berlin, the Tivoli in Copenhagen, the Salle Pleyel in Paris, Carnegie Hall in New York, Jordan Hall in Boston, Hoam Art Hall in Seoul and the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. The quartet performs the canon of great chamber music masterpieces, but also dedicates special attention to the music of our time. The extensive discography of the quartet includes music from many different periods, with particular emphasis on Polish music from the last three decades. Their recordings have been released on more than forty CDs, three of which won the Fryderyk Award of the Polish Phonographic Academy for the Best Chamber Music Album. The quartet has organised the annual International Chamber Music Festival The Silesian Quartet and Its Guests, gathering dozens of outstanding Polish and foreign artists together over a period of some twenty years.
