Founded in 2012, in Paris, the Van Kuijk Quartet recently won the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, along with the associated Best Beethoven and Best Haydn prizes. The quartet also won the 1st Prize and Audience Award at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in Norway, and are also laureates of the Aix-en-Provence Festival Academy and the French FNAPEC Ensembles Music Competition.
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 now study with Günter Pichler at the Escuela Superior de Mùsica Reina Sofia in Madrid; their studies take place thanks to the generous support of the International Institute of Chamber Music of Madrid.
An established presence in major international venues, the Van Kuijk Quartet has performed at the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Wigmore Hall in London, Tivoli in Denmark and at festivals in Heidelberg, Verbier, Aix-en Provence, Lockenhaus and Stavanger.
