radio.string.quartet.vienna  

The Austrian Cultural Forum Washington and Amico Artists of Campaign Digital, Inc. present: 

A concert by radio.string.quartet.vienna  

The radio.string.quartet.vienna is a fresh breeze from Europe’s capital of music. The quartet stands for contemporary music, musical diversity and entertainment.

Bernie Mallinger (violin), Johannes Dickbauer (violin), Cynthia Liao (viola), and Asja Valcic (violoncello) are famous for their stirring interpretation of John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra. The grand master himself, John McLaughlin, dedicated liner notes to the four musicians that virtually abound with superlatives. The radio.string.quartet.vienna caused a sensation for its extraordinary collaborations with Austrian accordion player Klaus Paier and Swedisch jazz singer Rigmor Gustaffson. The concert of the radio.string.quartet.vienna will feature pieces from the Mahavishnu Orchestra, self-composed pieces and classics by Joe Zawinul.

When: July 9, 2010
Where: Embassy of Austria, 3524 International Court, NW, Washington, D.C. 20008
