Praised for their “huge range of dynamics, massive sound and spontaneity” (American Record Guide), the Viano String Quartet won First Prize at the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition and top prizes at the Osaka and Wigmore Hall International Chamber Music Competitions.
Formed in 2015 at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles, where they were Ensemble-in-Residence through the 2020-21 season, the quartet has performed on three continents in venues such as Die Glocke, Wigmore Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, and Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The Viano String Quartet has performed with world-class musicians such as pianists Emanuel Ax and Elisso Virsaladze, violist Paul Coletti, and violinist Noah Bendix-Balgley. We congratulate them on having just recently been appointed the new Quartet-in-residence at The Curtis Institute for the 2021-22 season.
