– American Record Guide

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 are Ensemble in Residence through the 2020-21 season, the quartet has performed in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, SOKA Performing Arts Center, and the Cerritos Center for Performing Arts. During the 2019-20 season, the Viano performed on three continents, making debuts in Beijing, Berlin, Brussels, New York City and Vancouver, among other cities. The quartet records for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

In addition to their top prize in Banff, the quartet received the Grand Prize at the 2019 ENKOR International Music Competition and they have been prize winners at the Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition, the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, and the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition.

The name “Viano” was created to describe the four individual instruments in a string quartet interacting as one. Each of the four instruments begins with the letter “v”, and like a piano, all the strings working together as a string quartet, play both harmony and melody, creating a unified instrument, called the “Viano.”
