Polish Cello Quartet
Tomasz Daroch, Wojciech Fudala, Krzysztof Karpeta and Adam Krzeszowiec formed Polish Cello Quartet in 2011. Its members belong to a new generation of Polish cellists that had an honour and privilage to acquire their skills from world-leading cello teachers such as: Jelena Očić, Frans Helmerson, Ga ry Hoffman, Michael Flaksman, Paweł Głombik, Stanisław Firlej. Their musical output includes many awards in solo and chamber performances; they gained experience in many European cultural centers e.g. Cologne, Mannheim or Brussels. The members of the quartet, being friends for a long time, decided to initiate a chamber music group, to show and share their unique sound with the world. You can see them performing on a regular basis at many international music festivals, including: Wratislavia Cantans, Schiermonnikoog Chamber Music Festival, Q’arto Mondi, and Jazztopad. Their repertoire consists mainly of pieces originally composed for four cellos, many of which has never before been presented in Poland.
The Quartet is still working on and developing their repertoir, chosing the latest works by leading Polish and foreign composers. The group has collaborated with many great and highly regarded musicians both classical and jazz, among others: Gary Hoffman, Dominik Połoński, Tony Mallaby, Nate Wooley.
Members of the Quartet are the organizers and originators of the International Cello Academy in Nysa (Poland) which is thought to promote cello chamber music among students.
Since 2014 Polish Cello Quartet is a group
belonging to the National Forum of Music.
