We visited at 8pm on a Thursday night and was thoroughly entertained by the charisna, tangent and selection of music given. Don't be put off by other reviewers, this is s great night of lovely entertainment with wonderful talent, could not fault the evening at all. The lead violinist was out of this world.

The audience were about 8 people. Not enough to be inspired. It seems to me that the musiciens were playing as fast as possible so that they could finish this concert as quickly as possible. Even if there are 8 people you have to play as if it is for the first time. The male musicien seems to be fanny,... More

We love going to concerts when visiting different countries, I can honestly say this was the best so far. They were all very professional and you could see they were enjoying playing. There was a good range of different types of music, at times it was fun with the lead violinist playing directly to the audience, at other times more... More

The quartet performs in St. Adalbert's church. It is the oldest church in Kraków and due to it's small size creates a very intimate setting. The four musicians are very talented and it is soon obvious that the first violin is the star. They played familiar classics and contemporary pieces with a mixture of jazz ad lib added to a... More

This is a small church which holds 25-30 people. The performance lasted just under an hour with four very talented musicians. The play list us recognise able even for the musically challenged. It was intimate, it was fun and it as unique. Would defiantly recommend !

Ok, reading through some of these reviews (which I didn't before I went) these performances seem to split opinion. Personally, and I am not a classical officianado but love all types of music, then this was very enjoyable. Some classic music pieces with some film scores and an amazing piece of violin jamming thrown in, we enjoyed every minute of... More

Let me state I am no classical music expert, but I will take a guess and say if you are this might not be for you. The setlist of music covering the classic and modern numbers is definitely tailored for the tourist.....which is what I am so no problem. I reiterate, I am no expert but even i thought the... More

We should have known from the cliched mishmash of pieces in the programme that this was a classical tourist trap. Yet, the cello, viola and second violin were enjoyable on the few occasions they were allowed to be heard. In contrast, you could definitely hear the first violin who successfully drowned all else. He was late for the concert and... More

The first violinist of this "orchestra" (a.k.a. string quartet) is an musical virtuoso. He is clearly the driving force behind the musical arrangements of some technically challenging arrangements of popular classical and film music. However, he dashed off the pieces at an unseemly rush, glowered at the second violinist for making a minor mistake, and barely acknowledged the audience at... More
