Praised for their “huge range of dynamics, massive sound and spontaneity” (American Record Guide), the Viano String Quartet is the First Prize Winner of the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition and the current Nina von Maltzahn String Quartet-in-Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music. Formed in 2015 at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles, the quartet – which contains two VSO School of Music Alumni – has performed all over the world in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Place Flagey, Izumi Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, and Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
Now this up-and-coming quartet comes to Pyatt Hall to work with some of the VSO School’s advanced chamber groups on varied repertoire, in front of an audience. Choose to attend in-person, in Pyatt Hall, or view virtually via the VSO’s livestreaming portal.
