Wihan Quartet

The Wihan Quartet is one of the leading string quartets to emerge from the great Czech school of performance in recent years. Formed in 1985, the quartet has gained an extraordinary reputation for its interpretation of both the Czech domestic repertoire and many of the foremost works of the quartet repertoire of the Classical and Romantic periods, as well as modern works.

The Quartet is in demand as an exponent of the great traditional quartet repertoire and will be appearing at Oxford Chamber Music Festival and Salzburg String Quartet Festival in 2024. The quartet has won many international competitions including the Prague Spring Festival and Osaka Chamber Festa. They won both the First Prize and the Audience Prize in the 1991 London International String Quartet Competition.
