The Finzi Quartet has won one of two £10,000 ensemble awards in the Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL) Annual Music Competition in London. Two other string players won solo prizes: cellist Jun Sasaki, a student of Thomas Carroll at the Royal College of Music, was awarded the £5,000 strings prize; and Canadian violinist Sadie Fields won an overseas award. The value of the awards was double that of previous years, as a consequence of 2010 being the ROSL's centenary.
