The New Music Quartet was founded in 2015 in Poland. The members are students and graduates of Music Academies in Bydgoszcz and in Poznań. It was their great potential which brought them invitations to chamber music festivals and masterclasses such as: “Musethica” in Spain, “Zeist Music Days” in Netherlands, “Quatuor a Bordeaux” in France, and “Jeunesses Musicales International Chamber Music Campus” in Weikersheim, Germany. The quartet has worked with numerous outstanding musicians, including Günter Pichler and Valentin Erben (Alban Berg Quartett), Heime Muller (Artemis Quartett), Luc-Marie Aguera (Ysaÿe Quartet), Vogler Quartett, Cuarteto Quiroga, Emerson String Quartet, Shanghai String Quartet, Alexander Pavlovski (Jerusalem Quartet), Orfeo Mandozzi (Vienna Brahms Trio) and Avri Levitan. Recently the quartet was awarded 1st Prize and 3rd Special Prize at the 2nd International Karol Szymanowski String Quartet Competition in Katowice.
