For their debut release on Chandos, award winning Silesian Quartet presents the complete string quartets by Grayna 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.

Not merely the atmosphere, but also the various references suggest that Weinbergs music including his String Quartets Nos. 8, 9 and 10 comes from the mind of someone who suffered because of the tragic fate of his family and missed the lost homeland where he had spent 'the best and happiest years' of his life, as he confessed many years later to an interlocutor from Poland. These three works Opp. 66, 80 and 85 were composed in a period when he lived off memories, which is also evident in his choice of texts for his vocal works.

Not merely the atmosphere, but also the various references suggest that Weinberg’s music – including his String Quartets Nos. 8, 9 and 10 – comes from the mind of someone who suffered because of the tragic fate of his family and missed the lost homeland where he had spent 'the best and happiest years' of his life, as he confessed many years later to an interlocutor from Poland. These three works – Opp. 66, 80 and 85 – were composed in a period when he lived off memories, which is also evident in his choice of texts for his vocal works. His Symphony No. 6 Op. 79 sets Jewish and Russian poems about the war, while in The Diary of Love Op. 87 he uses texts by Stanislaw Wygodzki which lament the death of the poet’s daughter in Auschwitz.

World-class pianist Christoph Soldan is joined by the Silesian Chamber Soloists for this recording of Mozart's Piano Concertos Nos. 11 and 12. Recorded live at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Maulbronn Monastery, Soldan and the Soloists drawn from the Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra in Katowice perform an intimate version of the concertos for piano and string quintet, imbuing these pieces with renewed sensitivity which nevertheless loses none of the invigorating spirit of the familiar orchestral versions.

The Silesian Quartet’s most recent release under the CD Accord label is the first in the series of Mieczysław Wajnberg’s complete chamber works with string quartet. The album containing the String Quartet No. 7 in C major Op. 59 and the Piano Quintet in F minor Op. 18 (with pianist Piotr Sałajczyk) inaugurates a 7CD-series which will be completed in 2019 – the year of Wajnberg’s birth centenary. With this series, the Silesian Quartet pays tribute to this eminent Polish artist, considered as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. His impressive output of compositions is now being rediscovered and is increasingly winning acclaim among both musicians and audiences worldwide.

The Silesian String Quartet, from Poland, may well be the "Kronos Quartet of Eastern Europe" - which is meant as high praise. Each piece on this disc is an example of cutting edge contemporary writing by a young Danish composer and each piece is "linked", almost seamlessly, by what is described as an "electronic mix" - of the pieces before and after the link - by the composer Morten Riis. The key to appreciating this disc is to be prepared for some amazing extended techniques and writing that transforms the string quartet into something almost "beyond" itself.
