For their debut release on Chados, award winning Silesian Quartet presents the complete string quartets by Grazyna Bacewicz. Bacewicz's life was conditioned by the political and military events of her time, making her works reflect not only traumas but also the stylistic shifting into twentieth-century music. These seven string quartets have withstood the test of time and showcase Bacewicz's understanding of all string instruments.

-----

REVIEWS:

Composed between 1938 and 1965, these seven works add up to a compelling portrait of a powerfully original creative spirit. The whole group seem to understand this life-affirming music from the inside.

– Gramophone

A tremendous achievement.
