"Style, energy and a sense of risk - these four young Frenchmen made the music smile.” This is how the music critic from the prestigious British daily The Guardian described this ensemble's playing in 2015, after the then three-year-old Parisian quartet won the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London.

It was not just the first prize that this contest yielded for Quatuor van Kuijk: They also received the prizes for the best performances of Beethoven and Haydn. The first few years of the ensemble's existance were successful indeed: Nicolas van Kuijk and his three partners won first prize at Norway's Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition, with another fruitful appearance at the L'Académie du Festival d'Aix-en-Provence. They are currently residents at the ProQuartet European Centre of Chamber Music in Paris, where they are studying with the members of three world-famous and storied ensembles: the Alban Berg, Artemis and Hagen quartets. They also count the members of the Ysaÿe Quartet as their teachers, in addition to furthering their training as students at the Queen Sofía College of Music with the support of the Madrid International Chamber Music Institute. Participants in various quartet academies and master classes, they perform concerts all over, from London and Heidelberg to Verbier and Lockenhaus.
Their website shows what a rich repertoire they have mastered over the course of half a decade: in addition to core works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms, plenty of 20th and 21st century output also appears on the list. Hungarian music aficionados will be delighted to see György Kurtág also being represented by a work. There will also be no lack of contemporary music at their Budapest concert, which will feature a new opus composed by their French compatriot Édith Canat de Chizy.
