MAZO Horn Quartet

Ensemble

Podczas jednego koncertu Mazo idealnie przechodzi z subtelnego i intymnego klimatu dzieł J. S. Bacha do radosnych, muzycznych fajerwerków prezentowanych w utworach K. Turnera. Nagła zmiana barwy brzmienia, nastroju to niezwykle rzadka umiejętność, która zachwyca słuchaczy na całym świecie.

2015/2016 concert season beings for the quartet with diligent preparing for numerous world premieres of the works specially dedicated for them by such polish composers as Piotr Moss or Jarek Kordaczuk. It is a great distinction for the group and also a great opportunity for development on the paths of contemporary music. An inspiration for creating Mazo Horn Quartet was a desire to propagate rich, but rarely performed horn chamber music. United with passion for experimenting, combined with outstanding musicians of leading european and polish symphonic orchestras – Igor Szeligowski (London Symphony Orchestra, Polish National Opera in Warsaw, Henryk Kowalewicz – Sinfonia Varsovia, Krzysztof Stencel – Helsinki Baroque Orchestra, Chamber Opera of Warsaw, Marek Michalec - Polish National Opera in Warsaw) Mazo Horn Quartet connects during its performances an arrangements of J.S. Bach fugues and chorals and pieces of the romantics composers with contemporary works written especially for them giving a tremendous palette of colors which amaze the audience. During the last four years quartet debuted in such places as: Frederic Chopin University of Music Concert Hall, Sudecka Philharmonic, Lublin Philharmonic gaining recognition amongst critics and press. Ensemble is frequent guest of numerous festivals eg. Royal Lazienki Music Festival in Warsaw. Apart from performing onstage musicians of the quartet share the passion of teaching horn playing during numerous specially organized chamber and solo masterclasses.
