Praised for their "beautiful sound" (Beijing Global Times) the Arneis Quartet is proving to be one of the finest emerging ensembles of its generation. "As a relatively young quartet, they have already achieved something it often takes years to develop: a unique, collective sound which is as warm and full of sparkle as liquid gold." (Boston Musical Intelligencer) Playfully named after the Arneis grapea varietal that is difficult to grow, but which yields an exquisite white wine the Boston-based quartet has been hand-picked by the St. Lawrence String Quartet for its inaugural John Lad Prize, which includes debuts on the Stanford University Lively Arts series and Music on Main in Vancouver. Arneis served as the 2011 Young Artist Fellows for the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music and has participated in the Juilliard Quartet Seminar, the Deer Valley Emerging Quartets and Composers Program, and the Banff Centre Chamber Music Residency. The quartet has been selected to participate in the Aspen Center for Advanced Quartet Studies during the summer of 2012.
