The Polish Cello Quartet was founded in 2011; the only ensemble of this kind in Poland and one of few of this class in Europe. Since 2014 PCQ is a resident ensemble of the National Forum of Music in Wrocław. The four young virtuosos have one goal: to put the cello quartet on a par with other chamber ensembles embedded in tradition and well established on stage. To accomplish this they wander several paths whilst sticking to the principle of building their repertoire of pieces written originally for cello quartet.

Sometimes they will jump into the shoes of tireless researchers, browsing through libraries, archives and publisher catalogues in quest for forgotten compositions for cello quartet which thanks to their zeal have their first performances on Polish concert platforms. Equipped with a knowledge of music of bygone decades and centuries, they are all the more knowledgeable in expanding their repertoire by adding contemporary works, usually dedicated to them by superb Polish and international composers, sensitive and responsive to suggestions of their would-be performers.

Their first album in every respect pioneering on the Polish phonographic market contains the fruit of their historical discoveries.
