Krzysztof Meyer’s widely performed and multi award-winning music embraces impressive emotional depth and immense technical variety. While the Seventh Quartet explores the contrasts between solo and ensemble writing in a single movement, the extended Tenth Quartet can be seen as a synthesis of Meyer’s experience with the genre. The Thirteenth Quartet is his most recent to date. The Wieniawski String Quartet’s recordings of Meyer have been acclaimed as “exemplary in all respects” (The WholeNote on Vols 1 & 2: 8.570776 and 8.572656).


Review By Grego Applegate Edwards,Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review,December 2012

Polish composer Krzysztof Meyer…writes string quartets of architectural complexity and high modernist purity. The Wieniawski String Quartet and Naxos issue Volume Three of the complete output this month, String Quartets Nos. 7, 10 and 13…and it has very much to commend it.

No. 13 is his latest to date and along with Nos. 7 and 10, there is very much excellent music to experience…Meyer views the configuration as appropriate for very serious and advanced sonorities and the Wieniawski Quartet bring the salient import of these works to the recorded medium with the precision and passion they demand.

These are great abstract constructions, at once intimate and multivalent.
