" It was hard not to fall in love with the Szymanowski Quartet at the Frick Collection on Sunday afternoon.
All professionals perform with intensity, but playing from the heart is another matter.
The sound was unusually warm, filling this small space to capacity." (Bernard Holland, New York Times)
" This Warsaw foursome has superb technical control, innate musicality and an extraordinary sense of ensemble. Couple that with a deep understanding of their repertoire and an involvement that communicates itself electrifyingly to an audience, and the Szymanowski Quartet bears the hallmark of greatness."
(Paul Cutts in "The Strad")

Szymanowski Quartet is thrilled to announce many exciting projects around the world as a part of a the 200th anniversary of the birth of Stanisław Moniuszko, Polish composer, conductor, organ player, educator, director of Warsaw’s Teatr Wielki, and the father of Polish opera.
Szymanowski Quartet is going to present his two string quartets: String Quartet No. 1 in D minor, and String Quartet No. 2 in F major. Both works are juvenile compositions completed most propably in autumn 1839. They are characterised by simplicity and tunefulness typical of Moniuszko and from the stylistic point of view they remain under the influence of Viennese classics.
