“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Founded on the rich interdisciplinary concept of chaos, the Chaos String Quartet combines a highly refined ensemble culture and a fiery vitality with a passion for exploring experimental and improvisational approaches. With their affinity for embracing unpredictability and risk-taking, the ensemble’s members bring a unique dynamism and vibrancy to their playing featuring a whole universe of sounds.

Recently awarded at the prestigious ARD International Music Competition in Munich and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, the Chaos String Quartet is quickly establishing itself on the international music scene. Earlier successes include winning multiple prizes at Budapest’s 2021 Bartók World Competition and the Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy. 

The Chaos String Quartet was invited to music festivals such as the Davos Festival, the Ravenna Festival, the Gent Festival van Vlaanderen, Musica Insieme Bologna, Festival Academy Budapest, Festival del Quartetto Firenze, Lockenhaus, Wien Modern and the Heidelberger Streichquartettfest.

Mentored by Prof. Johannes Meissl in Vienna through the ECMAster program, the quartet has additionally completed a postgraduate course at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole with the Cuarteto Casals. The ensemble received additional musical impulses from artists such as Eberhard Feltz, Patrick Jüdt, Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet),  András Keller (Keller Quartet) and Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet).

Furthermore, the quartet is a member of the Chamber Music Association Le Dimore del Quartetto and has been selected for the promotional program New Austrian Sound of Music.

The Chaos String Quartet is developing multi-art performances and for the season 2022/2023, can be heard on concert stages in Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, and the UK.
