Bio:

The Rosamunde String Quartet was founded in 2015, so that its members could pursue their passion for the string quartet repertoire. Made up of young stars from three of the world's greatest orchestras, Noah Bendix-Balgley, 1st concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic; Shanshan Yao (violin) and Nathan Vickery (cello) of the New York Philharmonic, and Teng Li, principal violist of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. They take time away from their international careers to create music together. Each member is an accomplished soloist and musician, and brings their unique voice to the ensemble. By uniting their experiences, they create a distinctive sound and unanimity of expression.
