This young quartet swept the top prizes at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition in 1999, showing remarkable technical and interpretive qualities. Known for "a range of color, volume, and vibrato that seemed infinite," (The Irish Times), they have recently appeared at Carnegie Hall and Wigmore Hall in London. With "a light touch, songful tone, and polished technique," (Jerusalem Post) this quartet is quickly gaining recognition in the finest chamber music halls in the world.
