Since its founding in 1995, the Szymanowski Quartet has developed into an ensemble that combines passion and musicality with experience and an in-depth understanding of its repertoire . The string quartet won all kinds of different prizes and awards such as at competitions of Melbourne, Osaka and Florence. From 2001 to 2003, the four strings were "New Generation Artists" of the BBC and received the prestigious "Szymanowski Prize" in 2005.
