“Absolutely stunning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We were utterly blown away by this gorgeous string quartet. The intimate church setting made it all the more special - you could almost read the music yourself from where I was sitting. Brilliant mix of classical and popular music made for a very relaxing evening. Loved it.

“Pleasant way to spend an hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

7pm concert held in the little St Adalberts church in the main square. Lovely if cramped space with room for about 30 people and the 4 musicians. Good programme of popular music though one of the musicians did try to show off a bit (imagine a drum solo on violin).

“What a delightful performance !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We bought 3 tickets to listen to a fabulous performance in a tiny church in the old town square. Acoustics were excellent. All 4 members of the quartet were outstanding musicians and worthy of the sale of their CD.

“A short cultural evening in Krakow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

It was quite hot in Krakow, and while wandering round the square, we were handed a leaflet about the concert. We decided to go as it would be nice and cool in the church (we thought). The concert was in fact in just one tiny area of St. Adelberts church so not as cool as we had hoped. Venue is very intimate. My brother in law had to change seats (we were in the front row)because he is tall and was so close to the stage, his eye could have been poked out by the cellist's bow. It was however a very nice performance, just the right length of time and good choice of music. it made a change from just having a beer in the square. Mind you, we made a dash for a refreshing ale after the concert, to cool off. If you go to the Zloty Piec restaurant afterwards and show your ticket, you get a free wine, though personally, I'd give the wine a miss and go elsewhere.
