Festiwal "Emanacje" Airis String Quartet | Sucha Beskidzka | sobota, 04. sierpień 2018

Sucha Beskidzka lies in a basin, between the hills of the Beskids, on the Skawa river. In the early years of the 15th century, Prince Jan III of Oświęcim initiated a program of settlement of the sparsely populated forested areas in the Beskids. In 1405, a man named Strzala was allowed to found a settlement, which later took on the name Sucha. Most likely, the Strzala family remained owners of the settlement until the late 15th century, when Sucha was transferred into the hands of the Słupski family. In 1554, Stanisław Słupski sold the village to an Italian-born goldsmith from Kraków, Gaspare Castiglione, who changed his name to Kasper Suski. Castiglione initiated the construction of the Sucha Castle.

Airis String Quartet  was founded in 2008 by the students from the Academy of Music in Cracow. In less than half a year after coming into existence the Quartet was awarded II prize at the International Competition Of The Contemporary Chamber Music in Cracow.  Following years have brought numerous awards. 
The ensemble acquired the essentials of playing together tutored by musicans of Dafo Quartet in Cracow and Jeroen Reuling and Sarah Kapustin in Holland. In 2014, Airis finished the post-graduate studies at University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna in Johannes Meissl’s class, violinist of Artis Quartet. Since 2012 the quartet was also a member of the European Chamber Music Academy. The ensemble took part in numerous masterclasses and improved their skills with such great musicians like: Marek Moś ( Silesian String Quartet, AUKSO Orchestra), Arkadiusz Kubica (Silesian String Quartet), Piotr Rechert (Camerata Quartet), Royal String Quartet, Apollon Musagete Quartett , Melos Quartet, Piotr Tarcholik, Jeroen Reuling, Sarah Kapustin (Rubens Quartet), Marc Danel (Danel Quartet), Grzegorz Kotow (Szymanowski Quartet), Luc Marie Aguera (Ysaye Quartet), Miguel da Silva (Ysaye Quartet), Peter Prause, Hatto Bayerle, Avedis Kouyoumdjian, Peter Crooper. On April 2016 the quartet was invited to take part in extraordinary masterclasses with Quatuor Diotima in Noirlac (France) studying contemporary pieces and modern techniques and working with young composers.
Besides classical and romantic pieces Airis String Quartet concentrates also at contemporary music, which takes special place in their repertoire. The ensemble had the honour and pleasure to work with great composers like Krzystof Penderecki,  Krzysztof Meyer, Rafal Augustyn, Ib Norholm and film music composers like Garry Schymann and Krzystof.
