"The music hits you like a thunderstorm, massive, dramatic, unstoppable. Music rooted in classical discipline yet allowing for jazz-like improvisation." - JAZZTHING

"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.
