Praised for their “huge range of dynamics, massive sound and spontaneity” (American Record Guide), the Viano String Quartet are First Prize winners of the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition. 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 in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Place Flagey, Konzerthaus Berlin, and Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Summer of 2021 brought debuts at Bravo! Vail and Rockport Music Festival, a return visit to Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival and, later in the season, extensive touring throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. The quartet has been recently named the Nina von Maltzahn string quartet-in-residence at the Curtis Institute of Music for the 2021/2022 season.
