"Ever since the film during the intermission of the 2017 Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Concert, the “Kolophonistinnen” cello quartet has made a striking impression on a broad public. With their commitment and their enthusiasm, performances by the four young women—Hannah Amann, Marlene Förstel, Theresa Laun and Elisabeth Herrmann—take listeners’ hearts by storm. For their debut CD, the “Heldinnen” (“heroines,” an affectionate and appreciative appellation by their teacher) have compiled an exciting program rich in contrast, in keeping with their characters, full of Viennese esprit and Slavic soul, world-famous melodies from blockbuster movies, as well as fascinating new pieces by top Austrian musicians Florian Bramböck and Matthias Bartolomey.
