Concert: Classic or Fantastic?
Coming from Russia, Romania, and Greece, the four musicians met in Vienna, where they formed the Selini Quartet in 2016. Since then, they have been performing around Europe and have won prestigious awards. All these have now led the Selini Quartet to be selected to represent Austria’s music scene across the world, through the “NASOM – New Austrian Sound Of Music” program, for the seasons 2020-2022.
They have been invited to perform venues such as Musikverein, Vienna Konzerthaus, Schuberthaus, Beethoven Museum, Beethovenhaus Baden, ORF RadioKulturhaus, MuTh, Pölz Halle Amstetten, Burgtheater, Hofburg. Outside of Austria, they have appeared in countries like Germany, Greece, France, Italy, Norway, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal, the UK, and Belgium.
The Selini Quartet is a prizewinner of the “Szymanowski International Music Competition” 2018 (Poland)- 2nd prize as well as of the “Artis Quartet Prize” of ISA Competition (Austria).
In the summer of 2019, the quartet has been invited to teach at the “Toppen International Summer Academy”(Norway), as well as to participate in the Chamber Music Residency program of “Festival d’Aix en Provence” (France, 2019).
With the guidance of Johannes Meissl (Artis Quartett), they have been working since their formation, on developing the deepest understanding of music.
They have also been inspired by other wonderful musicians such as Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartett), Evgenia Epstein (Aviv Quartet), Peter Schumayer (Artis Quartett), Patrick Juedt, David Alberman (Arditti Quartet), Andras Keller (Keller Quartet), Pavel Vernikov, Leonard Roczek (Minetti Quartett), Diotima Quartet, Vida Vujic and more.
