aronquartet.jpgThe Aron Quartett has rapidly established an international career after forming in 1998. All four musicians already had gained reputations as principal players in Viennese orchestras, as well as Ernst Kovacic and Heinrich Schiff and other great musicians including Isaac Stern, Max Rostal, William Primrose, Mischa Maisky, Ralph Kirschbaum and Sandor Vegh, and members of the Amadeus Quartet, and La Salle Quartet.
Aron Quartett is the quartet in residence of the Arnold Schoenberg Center in Vienna, where they give regular concerts throughout the season. In 2004, they took part in the Webern Festival at the Konzerthaus in Wien when all the works of Anton Webern were performed, and Bbc Proms in London. Their busy schedule has included tours of Japan, Mexico, many concerts in Vienna and the major festivals in Austria, Kuhmo in Finland, and throughout Europe. Their New York debut concert at Carnegie Hall was in 2001, followed by debut concerts in Amsterdam, St. Petersburg, Moscow and Helsinki, and in 2002 at the Wigmore Hall, London, as well as an Ebu concert which was broadcast live in 21 European countries. They appeared at many major Festivals throughout Europe, including concerts in the Alban Berg Quartet series at the Konzerthaus, Vienna, at the Leamington Festival in England, and with Sharon Kam, Bruno Canino, Oleg Maisenberg and Philippe Entremont, which have firmly established their reputation as one of the most interesting international quartets in Europe. After the press launch in London in March 2004 at the Austrian Cultural Forum of their complete recordings of all the Schoenberg Quartets the critical acclaim included reviews in the Bbc 3 Magazine, the Guardian and the Strad Magazine; the Quarterly Review of Modern Music “Tempo” wrote: «a set of all Schoenberg’s string quartet music performed with the Aron Quartett’s conviction, technical mastery and golden tone, and so well recorded in such an ideal acoustic would be a prize worth possessing». Since then the Aron Quartett has been recording Cesar Franck’s Piano Quintet with Philippe Entremont and has started a Cd production of all String Quartets by Erich Wolfgang Korngold as well as the Piano Quintet with Henri Sigfridsson.
