Silesian Quartet invites you to a concert that will be held on the first floor of Wrocław Contemporary Museum on Thursday, 9 May, at 6 pm.

Silesian Quartet, one of the leading Polish chamber ensembles, is celebrating 40 years of artistic activity. In their jubilee concert season, which coincides with the centenary of regaining independence by Poland, the quartet is performing ten special concerts in ten Polish museums. The series of monographic concerts includes the most valuable chamber works by Polish 20th-century composers . This repertoire has made Silesian Quartet famous, and its recordings have received many prestigious prizes and awards.

The Silesian chamber musicians go beyond the typical concert halls and perform in the interiors of museums whose uniqueness and architecture harmonises with the presented music.

During the concert at MWW, Silesian Quartet will perform works by Witold Szalonek, one of the most important representatives of the avant-garde trend in Polish and European music, a pedagogue and discoverer of the so-called combined sounds. The concrete walls of the air-raid shelter will resonate with compositions such 1+1+1+1, for 1-4 string instruments, and Symphony of Rituals for string quartet.
