2021 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition

2021 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition

11 - 19 Apr, 2021

The Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition was established as the Portsmouth International String Quartet Competition in 1979, became the London International String Quartet Competition in 1988 and then moved to Wigmore Hall in 2010. The Competition was established with the intention of reflecting, and in the hope of extending, awareness and appreciation of the richness of the string quartet, and to promote the discovery and development of talent and audiences for the string quartet.

Every competing quartet must perform Haydn, Mozart, a 20th Century work and the compulsory contemporary work in the Preliminary Round. Each quartet selected for the Semi-final round must play 19th Century repertoire; quartets which progress to the Final round must perform a Beethoven quartet.

The Jury will take into consideration the choice and variety of the repertoire and the balance of the programme for each competing quartet.
Closing date: 03 Dec 2020
