Atom String Quartet
It is one of the few bands in the world and the first ever in Poland string quartet playing jazz. The musical group performs mainly it's own pieces, inspired by Latin rythmes, Irish folklore, Spanish melodies and motives from various regions of Poland. Considering the non-typical line-up for a jazz band, those elements sound in a original and modern way – those are an inspiration for improvisation, which is spontaneous interaction of four strong musical personalities. The members of Atom String Quartet are highly skilled musicians, operating with flawless technique, demonstrating their great creactivity and ingenuity in drawing on music customs from classic and jazz music, as well as plenty of inspiration bordering folk and popular music.


„(…) During the Atom String Quartet concert we could hear the pieces from their CD Places, released last year, but not only those. The Quartet took the listeners to Iława or Zakopany presenting their own interpretation of these places. Jazz music was supported by folk elements. Violinists Dawid Lubowicz and Mateusz Smoczyński, violist Michał Zaborski and violloncelist Krzysztof Lenczowski prooved to the audience that strings can be used to make very powerful, energetic sound. The Elbląg Chamber Orchestra directed by Marek Moś dynamised the whole performance. It escalated the powerful, almost atomic, bursts of the Quartet and softened the sound during smooth pieces”.
Michał Pszczółkowski,

"The fourth day was probably the most expected by the audience and it was found the most popular. Musicians from Elbląg Chamber Orchestra came first on the stage, a moment later Atom String Quartet joined them. For an hour we could hear classic jazz standards in quartet and chamber orchestra arrangement. The whole performance was led by Marek Moś, the conductor of Elbląg Orchestra. (...) The appearance left no doubts that we dealt with the laureats of two Fredericks, who prove in their every performance that jazz music sounds good in symphonic or chamber performance."
