BBT Project: Kwartesencja Festival in Warsaw

“The Fabryka positively exudes cool relaxation… The auditorium itself is more like a large cellar than a typical chamber music venue – a budding rock band or jazz quartet would readily feel at home there. Which is why the Royal Quartet’s decision to launch their festival there in November 2004 might well have seemed daring, even reckless.. But the mix of venue and a handful of enthusiastic players really works, and draws a large appreciative audience of predominantly, but not exclusively, young people. Here, surely, is a classic case of Warsaw’s ability to retain its history and respect its architecture and yet brings to it a fresh purpose of relevance to Varsovians and their visitors today”
