About the Quintet
The Warsaw Quintet was founded in 1960 by five distinguished musicians from Poland whose first concert in Warsaw was such a success that they received invitations not only to perform in their own country but also abroad. A brilliant London debut in 1963 launched the ensemble on an international career, and they have performed numerous times since then in all of the major European music capitals, as well as in Hong Kong, Tokyo, India, United States, Canada, and Mexico.
The Quintet's repertoire includes virtually every major work written for this com?bination of instruments, beginning with Boccherini, through the romantic literature of Brahms, Schumann, Dvorak, and Franck, to twentiethcentury composers such as Shostakovich and Bloch.
The Quintet is making its Ann Arbor debut with tonight's concert.
