Aeolus String Quartet
Former graduate string quartet at UT has graduated to teaching and a bustling career
Arts Story  November 22, 2013, by Natalie Zeldin

This summer the Austin Chamber Music Festival really brings the heat
Arts Story  July 8, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...The composers represented on festival programs now go far beyond the usual suspects (those dead white guys in powdered wigs) to include writers of the 20th and 21st centuries, some of whom happen to live in Austin. The last few festivals have seen the Turtle Island Quartet playing a tribute to John Coltrane, Raul Jaurena & the Texas Tango Five playing a tribute to Astor Piazzolla, and the Tosca String Quartet playing a tribute to the Beat poets..."

Before it was played by the Aeolus String Quartet, Austin Chamber Music Center Artistic Director Michelle Schumann had alerted the crowd that the work wouldn't sound terribly discordant to ears a century past the cacophonies of Stravinsky and Schoenberg – indeed, today's standard-issue B-movie thriller comes with more jangling disharmonies than this Classical-era chamber work..."
