The Messages Quartet was established in 2014. The quartet has performed its broad and innovative repertoire several times at a series of chamber music concerts in the Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra in Katowice. Its collaboration with the Department of Composition, Coducting and Theory of Music at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw has resulted in many young Polish quartets making their debuts.
