NeoQuartet is the Polish string quartet focused on performing contemporary classical music. Members of NeoQuartet are great enthusiasts of modern art, therefore, they very often combine contemporary classical music with visual arts, modern dance, and electronics. NeoQuartet`s aim is to collaborate with contemporary composers and to make their music familiar to the wider audience. NeoQuartet is one of the most active European ensembles specializing in new music performance. In NeoQuartet`s repertoire there are the compositions by Reich, Crumb, Schnittke  and Penderecki (to name a few). Moreover, the pieces by many young composers were premiered by this ensemble. In 2010, NeoQuartet recorded their debut album released by DUX. In 2012, NeoQuartet was nominated to the Sztorm Roku Award, the Pomeran Artistic Award, and the Fryderyk Award (Polish Grammy Award) for the debut recording. In 2014, NeoQuartet recorded three CD albums. Since 2017, NeoQuartet also started to play on electric instruments with synthesizers and looper stations. This project is called NeoElectric Quartet – one of the world’s few electric string quartets performing new music. Since 2011, NeoQuartet is the organizer of the NeoArte Synthesizer of Arts Festival. The main idea of this annual event is to popularize the contemporary classical music among wide range of audience. For this festival, renowned composers, artists and young talented musicians meet together to provide a new musical perspective of our times. NeoArte – association established by NeoQuartet regularly commissions works  by Polish and foreign composers.
