With “a conviction that commands attention” (Fanfare), the Arneis Quartet performs an eclectic range of programs from the standard to contemporary, including commissions of new works and interdisciplinary collaborations in New England and throughout the world. Playfully named after the Arneis grape—a varietal that is difficult to grow, but which yields an exquisite white wine—the Boston-based Arneis Quartet has brought their energetic approach and programming to traditional concert venues as well as salon style concerts and community outreach since 2009.

Winners of the 2010 John Lad Prize and silver medal at the 2012 International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition, the Quartet has received fellowships at the Aspen Center for Advanced String Quartet Studies and the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music; other festivals attended include the Juilliard Quartet Seminar, the Deer Valley Emerging Quartets and Composers Program, and the Banff Centre Chamber Music Residency. Committed to new music, they have received a grant from Meet the Composer, performed at the Beijing Modern Music Festival and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. The Quartet has been featured at the Modulus Festival in Vancouver and Lively Arts Series at Stanford University. A recording of the chamber music of composer John H. Wallace, called “Arneis Quartet and Friends”, was released in 2016 on Centaur Records.
