ACOUSTIC QUARTET was established in 2014. The string quartet consists of the graduates of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice. The quartet has its roots in the AUKSO Chamber Orchestra of the City of Tychy. The orchestra has performed at festivals of classical and modern music, as well as on the radio (Polish Radio Channel 2).

The musicians lead active professional lives, playing concerts as soloists, concertmasters in orchestras, and chamber musicians in classical, ethno and popular music ensembles. They pay particular attention to the promotion of Polish music. Along with Wojciech Waleczek, an outstanding pianist, the orchestra elaborated a project named “Pearls of Polish music “. The band has been successful in finding a common denominator for classical music, ethnic music, rock and jazz (projects with Katarzyna Gacek and Kasia Moś). They are experienced in giving concerts accompanied by state-of-the-art technologies (S. Reich Different Trains).

The musicians have honed their skills at the greatest music festivals in Poland and Europe: Warsaw Autumn, Wratislavia Cantans, Dialogue of Four Cultures Festival, Sacrum Profanum, Film Music Festival in Krakow, Jazz Jamboree, European Culture Congress in Wrocław, Open’er Festival, EXPO Saragossa, Edinburgh Festival, Luzerne Festival, Armonie Sotto La Rocca.
