“The finish of… the Van Kuijk Quartet … Their unanimity, tonal blend and intonation are close to flawless, and they play with a fearlessness…”       Andrew Farach-Colton, Gramophone, 2019

Since their formation in 2012, the ensemble has become an established presence in major international venues, performing at the Wigmore Hall in London, Auditorium du Louvre and Salle Gaveau in Paris, Tonhalle in Zurich and Musikverein in Vienna.

Winners of the 2015 Wigmore International String Quartet Competition, from 2015-2017 the Van Kuijk were BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, and joined the prestigious ECHO Rising Stars roster for the 2017-18 season. This season the quartet made their debut in Hong Kong, Australia & Taiwan, and will be returning to North America this autumn.
