Founded in 2019 on the principles of chaos in the arts, science, and philosophy, the Chaos String Quartet has rapidly established itself on the international music scene.

Selected as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist 2023-2025, the ensemble has been previously awarded at the most prestigious international competitions such as Bad Tölz (2023), Haydn (2023), ARD (2022) and Bordeaux (2022). Additional successes include prizes at the 2023 Heidelberg competition, the 2021 Bartók World Competition, and the International Premio V. E. Rimbotti in Italy in 2020. 

The Chaos String Quartet has been invited to music festivals such as the Schwetzingen SWR Festival, Mozartfest Würzburg, Les Musicales de Normandie, Davos Festival, Ravenna Festival, Lockenhaus Festival, Wien Modern, Festival de Musica Morelia and Upper Galilee Festival and to concert halls such as the Musikverein Wien, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Wigmore Hall, Philharmonie de Paris and Bozar. 

Next to their classical concert career, the quartet enjoys developing its own projects in order to make the quartet repertoire more approachable and open it up to a more diverse audience. 

Mentored by Prof. Johannes Meissl in Vienna through the ECMAster program, the ensemble additionally completed a postgraduate course at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole with the Cuarteto Casals. The young musicians received further musical impulses from artists such as Eberhard Feltz, András Keller, Oliver Wille and Helmut Lachenmann.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
