Artists from the Lutosławski Quartet need no special introduction. At the beginning of November, they will once again give a solid display of their skills in a repertoire whose common denominator is America. What America? Multicoloured, not obvious and full of contradictions. We are sure that with such a set this autumn evening simply cannot go wrong.

For a good start – the touching Adagio from String Quartet in B minor op. 11 by Samuel Barber. His composition was recognized in the BBC survey as one of the saddest works in history. Due to its elegy mood, it has often been used during funeral ceremonies, including John F. Kennedy, Albert Einstein, or after September 11, 2001. From the poignant melancholy, the musicians of the Lutosławski Quartet, with the help of the work of Antonín Dvořák, will lead the listeners to a slightly lighter atmosphere from an American saloon. String quartet in F major No. 12 op. 96 "American" by the eminent Czech composer and conductor was written and inspired by his stay in the United States.

In the second part of the concert, the Lutosławski Quartet artists will reveal other faces of the USA. Philip Glass composed String Quartet No. 2 "Company" in January 1983 referring to Samuel Beckett's short story of the same title. A mighty finale of the evening will be the work of George Crumb, a composer from the American avant-garde circle. Black Angels: Thirteen Images from the Dark Land is a song distinguished by unconventional instrumentation: it is intended for electronically modified string quartet, and players also use crystal glass and gongs. The composition was created in a dark period in the history of the United States – during the Vietnam War. As the author himself admitted, Black Angels is a parable of the disturbing modern world.

It goes without saying that America is full of diverse flavours, cultures and energies. Its musical tales play the role of a universal language understandable to every listener. Musicians from the Lutosławski Quartet will help us not only to get to know this land, but above all understand it.
