Skampa Quartet

Founded in 1989 at the Prague Academy under the guidance and encouragement of Antonin Kohout and Milan Škampa of the Smetana Quartet, the Škampa Quartet has since established itself on the international chamber music circuit.

 

The Škampa Quartet's excellence was first recognised in 1990 when they became the winners of the Best Quartet prize in the Premio Vittorio Gui competition in Florence.

 

The following year the young quartet was awarded the first prize in the Charles Hennen competition in the Netherlands and in 1992 they received a special prize from the Czech Chamber Music Society.

 

The Quartet made its debut in February 1993 at Wigmore Hall, an appearance which won them the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for the best debut of that year.

 

The Škampa Quartet now performs regularly throughout Europe, America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand at prestigious venues including Wigmore Hall in London, the Musikverein in Vienna, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Lincoln Centre in New York, the Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Dvorak Hall in Prague.
