Quatuor Meccore – Presse

World-class. The Meccore String quartet shines / « De renommée internationale. le Quatuor Meccore brille »

“The quartet, founded in 2017 and multiply prize winning, has realized in August Everding hall works by Grieg, Schostakowitsch and Tschaikowsky with such fire, such stage presence, such a really unique dance-like impetus and such infalliable taste like only an absolute world-class ensemble is possible to do.”

Harald Eggebrecht, Süddeutsche Zeitung, January 2018


Exceeded expectations / « Attentes dépassées »

“Among experts, the Meccore String Quartet is reckoned the best Polish string quartet. (…) Across Europe there are extremely few quartets so young but who play at such a high level. Four stylists who left their ‘Sturm und Drang’ period behind and passionately explore the works they chose, displaying a delicate technical acuteness which, at the same time, leaves room for emotional emphasis.”

Ulrich Pfaffenberger, Süddeutsche Zeitung, December 2017


Stupendous Virtuosity and Emotion / « Virtuosité et émotion stupéfiantes »

“The Polish quartet (…), among the most exciting ones of their generation, performed with fervour, excelled in fascinating contrasts, and displayed elaborate phrasing. (…) The four stunning virtuosi created powerful suspense and dynamics, seizing the audience to follow with tangible concentration on a continuously high level. Bravos, cheers and stamping feet already after the first piece and before the intermission acclaimed a performance as much refreshing as musically convincing.”

Udo Watter, Süddeutsche Zeitung, April 2017


The best Polish string quartet ever – « Le meilleur quatuor polonais de tous les temps »

“Meccore quartet make a unique use of dynamics and phrasing. Their interpretations of Beethoven, Szymanowski and Sibelius are like holy fire pouring from the skies. The best Polish string quartet ever. The four have Beethoven’s music under their skins. »

Lidy van der Spek, « Algemeen Dagblad », November 2016

« Arrivent les quatre musiciens du Quatuor Meccore pour le Concerto en fa mineur. Ils jouent debout, le violoncelliste sur une petite estrade le mettant à la même hauteur que ses camarades. Ils appuient sur leurs archets, ancrent leur main gauche sur le manche de leurs instruments, poussent leur sonorité qui porte jusqu’au premier balcon avec une plénitude impressionnante » – Alain Lompech


Magnetizing – « Magnétique »

« They sound so magnetizing that you forget it’s a string quartet playing. Even the slightest nuance of the piece is gleaming. »
