Neskowin Chamber Music
The prize-winning Meccore Quartet will present the fourth concert in the twenty-first season of Neskowin Chamber Music on February 15, 2015 at 3 p.m. The group was formed by four of Europe’s most celebrated string players in 2007.
They have toured many European countries and made their North American debut in 2013. Members are: Wojciech Koprowski, violin; Jaroslaw Nadrzycki, violin; Michal Bryla, viola; and Karol Marianowski, cello.
They won second prize—and three additional special prizes—at the London International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in 2012. The group also received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition in 2011, the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden (2010), and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition in 2009.
As postgraduates at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, they worked with Alfred Brendel on the interpretation of Beethoven’s music. Brendel said that Meccore “has impressed me as an outstanding young ensemble.”
The Meccore Quarter directs “Q’arto Mondi,” an international chamber music festival featuring top quartets from around the world that takes place annually in Poland. After being 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 group was also nominated for the prestigious Paszporty Polityki award.
