Szymanowski Quartet

Thursday 2nd October 2014 (19:30-21:30)

Founded in Warsaw in 1995, the Szymanowski Quartet has captivated audiences at prestigious festivals and in concert halls throughout Europe, the USA, Asia, Australia and South America. They make a welcome return to Lakeside with an intriguing programme that includes works by two Polish composers: the 16th-century court composer Wacław of Szamotuły and Szymanowski, whose String Quartet No.2 written in 1927 incorporates characteristic elements of Polish folk music.
