“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
To follow one’s own path unburdened by pre-defined standards, one that transcends barriers and pushes all boundaries – that is the motto of the Chaos String Quartet. As winners of the XI Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy, they were invited to music festivals such as Beethoven Frühling Baden, Podium Festival Mödling, Steirisches Kammermusikfestival, isa Festival, Musethica Zaragoza and Festival del Quartetto Firenze.
At the 65th JM International Chamber Music Campus they were awarded the prize for the most promising newcomer ensemble 2020, which includes an invitation to the Heidelberger Streichquartettfest 2022.
The ensemble is currently mentored by Johannes Meissl and received additional musical training from artists such as Heime Müller, Clive Brown, Eberhard Feltz, Hatto Beyerle, Hariolf Schlichtig, Rainer Schmidt and Oliver Wille. Since 2019, the quartet is completing the ECMAster (European Chamber Music Master) Programme.
