Wihan String Quartet

Leoš ČepickýJan Schulmeister, violins
Jiří Žigmund, viola
Aleš Kaspřik, cello

The Wihan Quartet has rapidly established itself as one of the elite European quartets of its generation, now with over twenty recordings to its credit on various record labels. They won the First Prize and the Prize of the Czech Jeunesses Musicales at the 1988 Prague Spring Festival, and in 1990 the First Prize of the International Chamber Music Competition in Sicily. In 1991 the Wihan won First Prize, the Audience Prize, and the Journalists’ Prize of the London International Competition by an unprecedented unanimous vote of the jury, chaired by Yehudi Menuhin. Since this early success, the Wihan Quartet has been building a universally acclaimed reputation through performances in major cities throughout Europe, Australia, Japan and the United States. They have also become a favourite of major radio stations, including Czech Radio, RAI Rome, Süddeutscher Rundfunk, Radio France, Radio Classique Paris, Deutschland Radio Berlin, the BBC London, and WQXR New York. Since September 2002, the Wihan Quartet has been Visiting Quartet in Residence of Trinity College of Music, London, and has coached young British quartets at Pro Corda in Suffolk.
