Atom String Quartet is one of the most intriguing string quartets in the world, and also one of best Polish jazz bands. The group combines the capabilities of a string quartet (i.e. two violins, viola and cello) with improvisation in its broad sense. The set of instruments of a chamber music ensemble, which is most classic and firmly established in music tradition, enables the artists to search for new sound and formal achievements. It is difficult to define, in an explicit way, the music style of the group. Its musical output, besides jazz, shows sources of inspiration coming from Polish folk, music of various regions of the world, and also contemporary and classical music.
The quartet was established in Warsaw in 2010, and since doing so has performed at most of the world's major Jazz Festivals, produced four original albums, and collaborated with artists such as Branford Marsalis and Bobby McFerrin (amongst many others). In 2017/2018 season Atom String Quartet was the artist-in-residence in Mieczys?aw Kar?owicz Philharmonic in Szczecin.
