French quartet wins Trondheim contest top prize

Friday, 04 October 2013

The Van Kuijk Quartet has won first prize and the audience prize at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in Norway. The French ensemble, which formed in 2011 and studies with the Ysaÿe Quartet in Paris, received €15,000 and a concert booking at the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival 2014. Second prize went to the Belgian–Norwegian-Spanish Idomeneo String Quartet, and third to the Jubilee Quartet, from the UK.

This year’s jury included violist Thomas Riebl, cellist Louise Hopkins and members of the Wihan Quartet, and was chaired by violinist Levon Chilingirian. The competition, for young chamber music ensembles, has been held biennially since 2000. The 2015 competition will be for piano trio.
