The radio.string.quartet.vienna breaks the boundaries of the modern string quartet and takes the listener on a foray through the night, full of hidden sensations and longings, fantasies and nightmares. Great cinema to listen to, as intense and haunting as it is delicate and fragile.
"You cannot escape the sound of radio.string.quartet.vienna. The quartet stands out for its willingness to experiment and breaks all genre boundaries." - 3sat Kulturzeit Together, Bernie Mallinger, Cynthia Liao, Asja Valcic, and Igmar Jenner form one of the most innovative and distinctive string quartets of our time.New music? Modern classical? Jazz? The radio.string.quartet.vienna doesn't really want to fit into any of these categories. Powerful, groovy, virtuosic, with an almost endless palette of acoustic and electronically processed sounds, whether in their original compositions, arrangements of music by their fellow countryman Joe Zawinul, or the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra – no other string quartet in the world sounds like them.
