Praised for its breathtaking performances, flawless technique, and visionary interpretations, the Meccore Quartet won second prize – and three additional special prizes – at the London International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in April 2012. The Quartet also has received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition, the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden, and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition. The Quartet was formed by four of Europe’s most celebrated young string players in 2007 and now performs extensively across the continent and abroad. The Quartet’s hugely successful debut tour in North America took place in November 2013.
Warner Classics released the Quartet’s debut CD of Debussy and Szymanowski in 2015, a finely nuanced and deeply introspective recording that won acclaim both in Europe and the U.S. As students the Meccore worked closely with the Artemis Quartet as well as with Alfred Brendel. Brendel raved that “the Meccore String Quartet impressed me as an outstanding young ensemble.”
The Meccore Quartet directs “Q’arto Mondi,” an international chamber music festival featuring top quartets from around the world that takes place annually in Poland. After having been featured many times on European radio and television, the Quartet’s Schubert recording was recently named one of the best accomplishments on the Polish cultural scene. The Quartet was also nominated for the prestigious Paszporty Polityki award.
The Quartet receives financial support from the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as from Young Poland.
