Founded in Israel and a decade into its expanding musical life, the Aviv Quartet appears in concert throughout the world, from Cape Town to Stockholm and from China to Brazil. The quartet has won numerous prizes, including grand prize and four special prizes at the Melbourne Chamber Music Competition, top prize and criticsʼ prize at the Bordeaux String Quartet Competition and first prize (Amadeus Prize) at the Charles Hennen Competition in Holland. The quartet has counted among its mentors Isaac Stern, the Alban Berg Quartet, Walter Levin, Henry Meyer, and Ben-Zion Shamir and has collaborated with artists such as Yefim Bronfman, Elisso Virzaladze, Brigitte Engerer, Martin Frost, Boris Petrushansky, Torleif Thedeen, Boris Berman, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, and many others. Aviv means “spring” in Hebrew—signifying new beginnings, a fresh outlook, the season of birth, and the shedding of coverings to reveal true nature, sharper definition and heightened awareness.
