Wihan Quartet

With their unique and spellbinding sound, The WIHAN QUARTET has made an impact in concert venues around the world. Heirs of the great school of Czech playing, the Quartet takes its name from Hanus Wihan (pronounced Hanush Veehan), the founder and cellist of the Bohemian Quartet and a close friend of Antonin Dvorak.

 

The Quartet was formed in 1985, and is still made up of the original four members. The Quartet has an outstanding reputation for the interpretation of its native Czech repertoire as well as for the many classical, romantic and modern masterpieces of the string quartet repertoire.

 

Since winning the London International String Quartet Competition in 1991, and a number of other major chamber music competitions, the Wihan Quartet has developed an impressive international career with regular visits to the US and Japan and to major festivals and concert halls throughout Europe.

 

The Quartet is 'Visiting Quartet in Residence' at Trinity College of Music, London and also works regularly for the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust and Pro Corda, the National School for Chamber Music, as well as sharing their skills with students throughout the UK.

They are regularly heard on BBC Radio 3 as well as radio and television in the Czech Republic and have made Europe-wide broadcasts on several occasions.
