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. Recently awarded at the prestigious ARD International Music Competition in Munich and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, the Chaos String Quartet is quickly establishing itself on the international music scene. Earlier successes include winning multiple prizes at Budapest’s 2021 Bartók World Competition and the Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy.

The Chaos String Quartet was invited to numerous music festivals, including the Davos Festival, Ravenna Festival, Les Musicales de Normandie, Lockenhaus, and the Heidelberger Streichquartettfest.

Mentored by Prof. Johannes Meissl in Vienna through the ECMAster program, the quartet is currently completing a postgraduate course at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole with the Cuarteto Casals. Furthermore, the quartet is a “Le Dimore del Quartetto” member and was selected for the 2023-2024 New Austrian Sound of Music program.
