As part of their first US tour, the band will perform a mix of their own compositions, tunes inspired by folk music, Polish jazz classics by jazz violinist Zbigniew Seifert, as well as pieces by Witold Lutoslawski and Krzysztof Penderecki. The group combines the features of a classic string quartet (i.e. two violins, viola and cello) with strong improvisational skills in the jazz idiom, which allows musicians to develop their distinctive sound and establish their own original style.

Atom String Quartet is one of the most intriguing string quartets in the world and one of best Polish jazz bands.

This concert is a one of the two live shows in Madison which are being part of the 3rd Edition of the Chicago-based “Chopin IN the City” Festival.  The festival is organized by Sound and Notes Foundation and aims at presenting Poland’s most interesting contemporary musicians as well as Polish music performed by foreign musicians.
