A program that communicates hope in many different forms, whether it's the exuberant energy of Dvořák's delightful miniature, the transcendent beauty of Pulitzer and Grammy–winning Caroline Shaw’s offering to a tree in an evergreen forest, or the triumphant themes of Grieg's sumptuous quartet. Each work suggests that in turbulent or challenging circumstances, joy, beauty, and resilience inspire hope and optimism in the human spirit.
Praised for their “virtuosity, visceral expression, and rare unity of intention” (Boston Globe), the Viano String Quartet achieved incredible success in their formative years, with an unbroken streak of top prizes at Osaka, Fischoff, Wigmore Hall, and Banff International String Quartet Competitions. Recent highlights include performances on three continents, including debuts in Berlin, Paris, Bremen, Brussels, Vancouver, and Beijing, among other cities.
