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 engaging performances, they have been hailed by The Australian as, “the future of Australian Chamber Music, the real deal.”

Orava Quartet has been invited to perform in Canada, the United States, United Arab Emirates, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Philippines, as well as for Queen Sofia of Spain and Pope Benedict XVI and was a graduate Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Colorado (USA).

Karin Schaupp is one of the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene.  She performs widely on the international stage as a recitalist, concerto soloist and festival guest, and has given countless recitals in Australia, Europe, Asia, the US, Mexico and Canada.  Karin’s playing receives the highest acclaim from critics and audiences alike and she is held in great esteem by her peers worldwide.  Her unique stage presence and magical, passionate playing have inspired several composers to write works especially for her.
