Danish String Quartet in Conversation

The London International String Quartet Competition has joined the Wigmore Hall family, and is now known as the Wigmore Hall/London International String Quartet Competition. Wigmore Hall director, John Gilhooly, joins Iain Burnside to discuss this move and the Hall's close relationship with the String Quartet genre.

Three members of the Danish String Quartet discuss their first prize win at the 2009 London International String Quartet Competition held at Wigmore Hall, ahead of their Sunday morning coffee concert, Sunday 13 February .

Read more about the Competition and its forthcoming Symposium at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester at the String Quartet Competition pages.
