NeoQuartet are passionate about art and contemporary music. They love to create, play concerts, think outside the box, challenge existing dogmas. They enormously value the possibilities of collaboration with various artists and ensuing mutual inspiration. They are fascinated by making bonds with audience, jumping to other dimensions and catching new perspectives of looking into the world. Outstanding energy, full commitment, freedom of expression and creation of new developmental paths – these are the main features of NeoQuartet.
Oxford’s first-ever January New Music Weekend will profile a number of exciting new compositional research projects—both from within Oxford and from outside. NeoQuartet is coming to Oxford for the first of several collaborative projects with Professor Martyn Harry in the next few years. They are to play two concerts and the programme includes pieces by Iannis Xenakis, Jakub Rataj, Martyn Harry, Daj Fujikura, and George Crumb.
The first concert on 12th January will be played in collaboration with British pianist, Jonathan Powell, and will be followed by a discussion. The second will take place on 13th January with pianist Maki Sekiya.
NeoQuartet plays concerts in Poland and abroad. Between 2012 and 2021, the ensemble performed over 500 concerts in almost every corner of the world, including the prestigious concert venues Carnegie Hall in New York and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing. NeoQuartet won the prestigious Pomeranian Artistic Award. The ensemble has also been nominated to numerous other prizes, such as Sztorm Roku or Fryderyki. The ensemble organise their own festival called NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts Festival, held annually in Gdańsk, Poland since 2012.
