The Orava Quartet, founded in 2007 by brothers Daniel Kowalik (violin) and Karol Kowalik (cello), Thomas Chawner (viola), and joined in 2011 by David Dalseno (violin), is one of the most exciting string quartets of its generation. Known for their passionate and thrilling performances, they have been hailed by The Australian as, “the future of Australian Chamber Music, the real deal”, signing, in 2017, to Deutsche Grammophon for its historic, first Australian release. Bringing their unique sound and breathtaking intensity to the classics of the string quartet canon and more, the Orava Quartet’s performances make audiences fall in love with these works all over again – or for newcomers, for the very first time. 

Orava Quartet has toured Canada, the United States, United Arab Emirates and Asia, and performed for Queen Sofia of Spain and Pope Benedict XVI.

Winning major awards at the 2013 Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition, since returning to Australia, the Orava Quartet has continued its impressive and rapid rise to national attention. They have performed for the Sydney Opera House Utzon Music Series, Melbourne Recital Centre, Musica Viva Australia and festivals including New Zealand Festival, Australian Festival of Chamber Music, and  Melbourne, Canberra, and Queensland Music Festivals.
