Apollon Musagète Quartett

Thursday, November 26, 2015 will mark the debut of the Apollon Musagète Quartett here in Toronto. This 2014 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award winning ensemble is composed of Pawel Zalejski (violin), Bartosz Zachlod (violin), Piotr Szumiel (viola), and Piotr Skweres (cello).
This Polish quartet was formed in 2006 while the members were at the Vienna Music University. Within two years they were winning awards – starting with first prize at the 2008 International Music Competition of the ARD. They have been named 2010-2011 Rising Stars by the Vienna Konzerthaus and Musikverein and 2012-2013 New Generation Artists by BBC Radio 3. Their debut CD was released in 2010 and they have since recorded several other CDs.
Playing both traditional and modern repertoire, they enjoy working with living composers and have had some works written for them. They collaborate with former members of the Alban Berg Quartet from time to time. For us, the Apollon with be playing a couple of their more traditional repertoire pieces – Dvorak and Schubert.
