Con Moto - String quartet
The four young musicians of the Con Moto string quartet first met in Hanna Widl's chamber music class at the Beethoven Music School in Mödling, Lower Austria.
They won first prizes at the federal competition "Prima la musica" several times, both as soloists and as a quartet. In 2009, they were invited to perform at the Charles Hennen Concours in Heerlend in the Netherlands. In 2012 and 2013, they won a scholarship with the International Summer Academy (ISA) PragWienBudapest organised by the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts, where they received lessons by Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet), Johannes Meissl (Artis Quartet), Evgenia Epstein (Aviv Quartet), Petr Prause (Talich Quartet) and Miguel da Silva (Quatuor Ysaye).
In 2012, Con Moto accepted an invitation to perform "Introduction and Allegro" by Edward Elgar in four concerts together with the Youth Symphony Orchestra of Lower Austria under Ernst Kovacic. In November 2013, they staged a concert in the Wiener Konzerthaus as part of the Musica Juventutis series. The young quartet has already performed at concerts in Malta, South Tyrol, Germany, and the Netherlands. They received the HBW cultural award in 2015, and they also performed at the international Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt during the same year.
