BIOGRAPHY

Founded on the rich interdisciplinary concept of chaos, the Chaos String Quartet combines a highly refined ensemble culture and a fiery vitality with an affinity for embracing unpredictability and risk-taking, enriching their playing with a unique dynamism and vibrancy. They are quickly establishing themselves on the international music scene, with successful performances at the ARD International Music Competition in Munich and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, as well as winning multiple awards at Budapest’s 2021 Bartók World Competition and the Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy. The quartet has performed at numerous music festivals, including the Davos Festival, Ravenna Festival, Les Musicales de Normandie, Lockenhaus, and the Heidelberger Streichquartettfest.

The quartet is currently completing a postgraduate course at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole with the Cuarteto Casals. The quartet was selected for the 2023-2024 New Austrian Sound of Music program and named a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist 2023-2025.
