ArtPower! presents Meccorre Quartet, which has received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition, the International Chamber Music Competition, and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition. Formed in 2007 by European string players, the Polish quartet flouts convention by incorporating elements of jazz and literature into its programs and performing in places with limited access to culture. The group includes Aleksandra Bryła, violin; Wojciech Koprowski, violin; Michał Bryła, viola; Karol Marianowski, cello.
The program will feature Franz Joseph Haydn: String Quartet No. 1 in B minor, Op. 33/1, H. 3/37; Karol Szymanowski: String Quartet No. 2, Op. 56, M64; Robert Schumann: String Quartet No. 1 in A minor, Op. 41/1
