About the Van Kuijk Quartet

Currently BBC New Generation Artists, the Van Kuijk Quartet’s international accolades boast First, Best Beethoven and Best Haydn Prizes at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, First Prize and an Audience Award at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition, also becoming laureates of the Aix-en-Provence Festival Academy. Further to this, they join the ECHO Rising Stars roster for the 2017/2018 season.

Since their formation in 2012, the ensemble is already established, performing at the Wigmore Hall in London, Auditorium of the Louvre and Salle Gaveau in Paris, Tonhalle in Zurich, Musikverein in Vienna, Berliner Philharmonie, Tivoli Concert Series in Denmark, Sage Gateshead, and at many international festivals. This season saw the quartet make their debut in Hong Kong, Australia & Taiwan. They are also due to return to North America at The Frick Collection in New York, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, and Salle Bourgie in Montreal.

The Quartet Records exclusively for Alpha Classics. Their debut recording, Mozart, was released to outstanding critical acclaim in Autumn 2016, and is followed by a disc of French music in late 2017.

The Van Kuijk Quartet is in residence at Proquartet, Paris, where they study with members of the Alban Berg, Artemis and Hagen quartets. Having taken their first steps as students of the Ysaye Quartet, the young musicians have worked with Günter Pichler at the Escuela Superior de Mùsica Reina Sofia in Madrid; supported by the International Institute of Chamber Music of Madrid.

Musical Patronage Societe Generale is the Van Kuijk’s main sponsor.
