Chaos String Quartet

The Chaos String Quartet, named BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist for 2023-2025, was founded in 2019 based on the principles of chaos in art, science, and philosophy. Having won such prestigious international competitions as ARD (2022), Bordeaux (2022), Bad Tölz (2023), and Haydn (2023), the ensemble is rapidly gaining prominence on the international stage, most notably performing at the Musikverein Vienna, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Bozar (Brussels), and Philharmonie de Paris. Other awards include prizes at the Heidelberg String Quartet Festival 2023, the Bartók World Competition 2021, and the International Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy 2020. In addition to its classical concert activities, the quartet is dedicated to developing projects that make the quartet repertoire more accessible and open to a wider audience. The ensemble completed its studies at the mdw, University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, supervised by their mentor Prof. Johannes Meissl, and completed a postgraduate course at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole with the Cuarteto Casals. The young musicians received further important musical impulses from artists such as Eberhard Feltz, András Keller, Oliver Wille, and Helmut Lachenmann. This is the ensemble's first CD on the label of the mdw in Vienna, under the label management of Solo Musica. Works by Joseph Haydn, György Ligeti, and Fanny Hensel were recorded.
