Polish Cello Quartet was formed on the initiative of Thomasz Daroch – for this occasion replaced by Marcel Markowski -, Wojciech Fudala, Krzysztof Karpeta, and Adam Krzeszowiec. They received lessons by, among others, Paweł Głombik, Stanisław Firlej, Frans Helmerson, Gary Hoffman, Michael Flaksman, Jelena Očić, Julius Berger, and Jeroen Reuling. All members teach at renowned Polish music academies.
They are in high demand with international festivals and regularly work with major figures in the classical and jazz worlds, such as Gary Hoffman, Julius Berger, Jadwiga Rappé, Dominik Połoński, Tony Mallaby, and Nate Wooley. They perform pieces originally written for cello quartet, as well as new compositions – more than 20 works so far.
Their debut album “Discoveries” was released in 2017, and in 2019 they collaborated on an album with music by Grażyna Bacewicz’s, for which they received the Fryderyk Music Award.
