Biography

Altra Volta String Quartet - information - English"The Altra Volta String Quartet does not only display artistic excellence, but also a rarely encountered ingenuity in their search for new forms of expression. A unique stage presence." Wiesław Sierpiński – General Director of the Józef Elsner Philharmonic in Opole

The Altra Volta string quartet was founded in 1998 and consists of graduates from the Academy of Music in Katowice. They have developed their artistic skills participating in professional classes in Poland and abroad, working under the direction of such prominent musicians as Barbara Górzyńska, Andrzej Bauer, Marek Moś, Andrzej Zieliński, Paweł Urstein, and Jerrold Rubinstein, as well as with members of Petersen String Quartet.

The quartet regularly performs in Poland (mainly in Upper and Lower Silesia), and has given numerous concerts abroad (Germany, Italy, Vatican State, Switzerland, Egypt, Turkey, Lithuania, Sweden, India and Sri Lanka).

The group has participated in numerous festivals and concert cycles (including the Ludwig van Beethoven Głogówecki Festival, Lądek Music Summer, Moritz Brosig Paczków Festival of Organ and Chamber Music, and Carl Maria con Weber Festival of Historical Parks and Gardens in Pokój). Altra Volta, invited by Opole Philharmonic Hall, also participates in musical sessions for schools every year.

In August 2007, as a part of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relationship between Poland and Sri Lanka, the quartet gave a performance at the Gala in the King's Court in Colombo, as well as gave a concert during a celebration of the awarding the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland to the Honorary Consul-General of the Republic of Poland in Sri Lanka. At the invitation of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations the quartet gave a performance at the prestigious Shri Ram Centre for Performing Arts in Delhi.

The quartet cooperates with Camerata Silesia – The Katowice City Singers' Ensemble conducted by A. Szostak, as well as with Stanisław Soyka, the Ars Harmonica trio and such prominent singers as the soloists from the Silesian Opera, Musical Theatre in Gliwice, Wrocław Operetta and the Śląsk group.

Altra Volta often involves itself in musical projects of A Theatre, working with the actors in performances of "Oratorium Benedicti", "Apokalipsa" and "Pelikan". The quartet also appeared in Retrieval, a film by Sławomir Fabicki (awarded in Cannes in 2006, a Polish candidate for an Oscar). They have also recorded radio broadcasts for Radio Opole as well as Vatican radio.

Since members of Altra Volta participate in other artistic groups (A Theatre, Aukso Chamber Orchestra of Tychy, Silesian Chamber Orchestra, Musical Theatre in Gliwice and the Europera International Youth Symphonic Orchestra), they appear in numerous prominent artistic projects involving such musicians as Janusz Olejniczak, Marek Moś, Andrzej Bauer, Leszek Możdżer, Tomasz Stańko, Michał Urbaniak, etc.

"The concert by the Altra Volta string quartet was intended to be a breath before another uplift; yet, in the end, a performance that was supposed to cool the audience instead caused even greater excitement. Their music enchanted ("The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi) and inspired everyone (especially with the very vivid "The Lark" by Dinicu)." Fortnightly magazine Las Polski

"There is no term to define high music in the Polish language, as what was played by the musicians a moment ago cannot be called serious classical music," joked famous Polish director and scriptwriter Krzysztof Zanussi when Altra Volta played the lively "Pizzicato Polka" by Strauss. "That was romping!" 20 March 2007 - Krzysztof Zanussi – Talks with music.
