Cracow Duo

Kalinowski & Szlezer
cello & piano duo

Magazine The Strad wrote about the Cracow Duo: “Kalinowski and Szlezer, friends since childhood, have a wonderfully natural rapport and there is an arresting quality to their playing that gives life to the music”.

They studied together in Cracow and Paris and began to perform together as Cracow Duo almost twenty years ago. Since that time their concerts and recordings received the highest critical acclaim in Poland and abroad, and gained them sympathy of listeners.
