LutosAir Quintet
Founded in 2013 on the centenary of Witold Lutosławski’s birth, LutosAir Quintet is one of the National Forum of Music resident ensembles. It is made up of the soloists of the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic: Jan Krzeszowiec, Wojciech Merena, Maciej Dobosz, Alicja Kieruzalska and Mateusz Feliński. At present LutosAir Quintet is one of the most active and versatile Polish wind ensembles. It has performed at the most important Polish festivals, such as the Warsaw Autumn, Wratislavia Cantans, Music on the Heights in Zakopane, Jazztopad, Poznań Music Spring, HMG Festival, and La Folle Journée (Warsaw National Opera). The LutosAir Quintet has also performed in England, Germany, Egypt (Cairo, Alexandria Library), and Denmark during Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter and Bornholms Musikfestival.
“Over the years the orchestra has lived through ups and downs in their proficiency, but the woodwinds have always been strong, sometimes excellent. The concert at “Na Czystej” made it even more obvious, demonstrating not only the technique, soloist disposition of the musicians or their outstanding teamwork, but most importantly their fantastic musical spirit.”

Projects
Recent highlights in the LutosAir Quintet history were concerts with the Wayne Shorter Quartet bringing together extraordinary jazz players (Wayne Shorter, John Patitucci, Brian Blade, and Danilo Pérez). During Jazztopad Festival and London Jazz Festival, both ensembles performed Wayne Shorter’s The Unfolding written specially for this occasion. The quintet has also collaborated with excellent Polish musicians: Piotr Sałajczyk, Maciej Frąckiewicz, and the Lutosławski Quartet. LutosAir Quintet’s repertoire includes, inter alia, new music. It also focuses on promoting Polish music. The quintet has performed several lesser-known pieces in the international repertoire and participated in world premieres of several works by Polish composers, such as Wojtek Blecharz, Paweł Hendrich, Nikolet Burzyńska, Marcin Stańczyk and Mikołaj Majkusiak. Rafał Augustyn dedicated his Rondeau to LutosAir Quintet.

Recordings
LutosAir Quintet has already released three albums: Canto for Winds (NFM / CD Accord) with the most beautiful wind quintets of recent times, Witold Lutosławski Opera Omnia vol.7 with children's songs of this great composer (recorded with the NFM Boys’ Choir, Lutosławski Quartet and instrumentalists of the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic under the direction of Andrzej Kosendiak), and appeared on the monographic album by Paweł Hendrich released by DUX. Fazil Say's piece performed by LutosAir Quintet was the main inspiration for the short musical film Neither Peace nor Quietness by Zbigniew Bodzek and Michał Dawidowicz, awarded many times at international film festivals.
