Haydn String Quartet in B minor, Op.33/1 Wacław of Szamotuły Chorales Szymanowski arr. Myroslav Skoryk Nocturne and Tarantella Mendelssohn String Quartet in F minor, Op.80 Founded in Warsaw in 1995, the Szymanowski Quartet has captivated audiences at prestigious festivals and concert halls in Europe, the United States, Asia, Australia and South America. They make a welcome return to Lakeside with an intriguing programme that includes works by two Polish composers: the 16th-century court composer Wacław of Szamotuły, and Szymanowski, whose String Quartet No.2 written in 1927 incorporates characteristic elements of Polish folk music.
