Since their debut six years ago, this young, award-winning string quartet from Poland has been captivating audiences with their energy and conviction.  Alongside their own devised work, Multitude they perform two works inspired by dance rhythms:  Penderecki’s roller-coaster ride of waltzes and gypsy melodies, and John Adams’s lively fusion of bluegrass, jazz, habanera and Latin sounds for his joyous set of dances.
