Praised for its breathtaking performances, flawless technique, and visionary interpretations, the quartet won second prize—and three additional special prizes—at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in April 2012. The quartet also has received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition, the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden, and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition. Formed by four of Europe’s most celebrated young string players in 2007, the Meccore performs extensively throughout the continent. Since 2009 the Meccore has worked closely with the Artemis Quartet at the Berlin University of the Arts. As postgraduates at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, the quartet worked with Alfred Brendel on the interpretation of Beethoven’s music. Brendel raved, “the Meccore String Quartet has impressed me as an outstanding young ensemble.” ArtPower is thrilled to welcome the quartet back in what is certain to be a brilliant performance!
