Aeolus Quartet Praised by the Baltimore Sun for combining “smoothly meshed technique with a sense of spontaneity and discovery,” the Aeolus Quartet, formed in 2008, has been awarded prizes at nearly every major competition in the United States and performed across the globe (Alice Tully Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Reinberger Recital Hall at Severance Hall, The Library of Congress) with showings "worthy of a major-league quartet" (Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News). Mark Satola of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes, “The quartet has a rich and warm tone combined with precise ensemble playing (that managed also to come across as fluid and natural), and an impressive musical intelligence guided every technical and dramatic turn.”  They were the 2013-2015 Graduate Resident String Quartet at the Juilliard School, and they currently make their home in New York City.

Busch Trio The musicians of the Busch Trio have won several prizes in international competitions as soloists and graduated from renowned academies of music in Britain. This trio came into being in 2012 and is the fruit of a friendship that had existed for years. Great names such as the teacher of chamber music Eberhard Feltz, pianist Sir András Schiff and The Artemis Quartet have contributed to their development.  With their ‘effortless musicianship’ (The Times) and great emotional sensitivity ascribed to them by the press and their loyal fans, these three musicians are guided by the head as much as the heart when playing music.
