NeoQuartet is a Polish string quartet focused on performing contemporary classical music. The quartet often combines music with visual arts, modern dance and electronics. Since 2017, as the Neo Electric Quartet, the quartet has also played electric instruments.
NeoQuartet aims to collaborate with contemporary composers and to make this music familiar to a wider audience. NeoQuartet has founded NeoArte, which regularly commissions works by Polish and foreign composers; to date, over 50 composers from all over the world have dedicated works to NeoQuartet. In addition, the quartet organizes the NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts Festival, established in 2012 and held each year in Gdansk, Poland.
NeoQuartet has performed extensively at festivals across the globe and has made recordings for various international labels.
At the concert NeoQuartet will premiere a quartet by Sunleif Rasmussen, and present a recording of Kristian Blak’s string quartets in addition to new Polish music for string quartet.
