Within just a few short years the Hugo Wolf Quartett has developed from a chamber music lover’s insider tip to one of the most sought after string quartets of its generation. A striking performance ..with penetrating intensity, NEW YORK TIMES. "Urgent and impassioned, but with an absolute commitment to the ideal values of every note" LOS ANGELES TIMES . "One hears in these players, embryonically and in miniature, the qualities that make the Vienna Philharmonic special”.NEW YORK TIMES

The International Hugo Wolf Society of Vienna allowed this ensemble, founded in 1993 at the Vienna University for Music, to use the composer’s name. The group’s current members are the violinists Sebastian Gürtler and Régis Bringolf, the violist Gertrud Weinmeister and the cellist Florian Berner. Shortly thereafter, the quartet won the Fifth International String Quartet Competition in Cremona, took first prize at the 45th International G.B. Viotti Chamber Music Competition, the European Chamber Music Prize and Special Prize of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and were elected Rising Stars.
