Warsaw’s Atom String Quartet was founded in 2010 by violinists Dawid Lubowicz and Mateusz Smoczyński, altoviolist Michał Zaborski and cellist Krzysztof Lenczowski. On its newest album, one of the leading and most intriguing improvising string quartets in the world ventures outside the world of jazz into the music of the great Polish contemporary compser Krzysztof Penderecki. Bat rather then tackling his avant garde works, they opted instead for his older, more traditional compositions. Some of these pieces are executed literally from the score, but others allow the ATQ to take liberty in improvised departures. Exhilarating!
