meccore string quartetPraised for its breathtaking performances, flawless technique, and visionary interpretations, the Meccorre Quartet took four prizes at the London International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in April 2012. The Quartet also has received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition (2011), the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden (2010), and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition (2009). Formed by four of Europe’s most celebrated young string players in 2007, Meccorre now performs extensively in major halls throughout Europe, including the National Philharmonic Hall in Warsaw, Beethovenhaus in Bonn, Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid, Wigmore Hall in London, and Musikverein in Vienna. The Quartet’s debut tour in North America took place in November 2013, and included Frick Collection in New York. In 2014 Meccore was honored to become the first Polish string quartet invited to perform during the ceremony on Holocaust Remembrance Day in the German Bundestag.

From 2009 to 2014 the Meccorre apprenticed with the Artemis Quartet at the Berlin University of the Arts. As postgraduates at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, the Quartet worked closely with Alfred Brendel on the interpretation of Beethoven’s music. In 2013 Meccore had their CD debut presenting the string quartets of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven. After having been 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 Meccorre Quartet directs “Q’arto Mondi,” an international chamber music festival featuring top quartets from around the world that takes place annually in Poland. The members of Meccore are also active in the pedagogical field, leading chamber music and violin classes at Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music in Poznań and Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. Meccorre Quartet receives financial support from the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as from “Young Poland,” in support of its mission to bring chamber music to underserved populations and children.
