Selini Quartet, 2nd prize winners of the Szymanowski International Music Competition 2018 (Poland), was founded in Vienna in 2016. Even though they have only been performing for three years, their dedication and passion has led them to perform in some of Vienna’s major concert venues, such as Vienna Musikverein, Vienna Konzerthaus, Schuberthaus, ORF RadioKulturhaus and Burgtheater, Hofburg. Abroad they have appeared in countries like Greece, France, Czech Republic and Poland. Their recent performances have included appearances at the Prague Clarinet Days Festival, the Steirisches Kammermusikfestival in Graz, and at the Aegina International Music Festival. Performing a wide range of repertoire has also led them to a collaboration with the Wien Modern Festival. In August 2018, the quartet was awarded the Artis Quartet Prize of the ISA Competition (Austria), which led to their performance in the ORF Radio-Kulturhaus, and a recording for the Austrian national radio. They have been invited to participate in many prestigious projects including ECMA, Musethica and the Quatuor Diotima’s Academy, during which they were inspired by artists such as Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet), Evgenia Epstein (Aviv Quartet), Stephan Picard, Patrick Jüdt, Peter Schumayer (Artis Quartet), Peter Nagy, Diotima Quartet, Vida Vujic and more. Selini Quartet is currently studying for a Master of Chamber Music with Prof. Johannes Meissl at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Upcoming projects include among others concerts in London, Musikverein Vienna and collaborations with other musicians like Avri Levitan.

Zèta Trio

  • Marjolein Spruit (violin)
  • Emma Warmelink (cello)
  • Bob Marsdon (piano)

The Zèta Trio consists of Marjolein Spruit (violin), Emma Warmelink (cello) and Bob Marsdon (piano). The members met at the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague and have been playing together for almost three years. The combination of Bob’s melodic craftsmanship, Marjolein’s passionate and expressive interpretations and the cadence and accuracy of Emma’s poignant ears make for refreshing insights of the music. This March the trio won the first prize as well as the Audience Prize at the Grote Kamermuziek Prijs. Zèta Trio has followed lessons and participated in masterclasses with Ellen Corver and Peter Brunt from the Osiris Trio, the members of Atos Trio, Lucia Swarts, Jaring Walta, Régis Bringolf, Alexander Pavlosky. Emma Warmelink and Bob Marsdon play on instruments loaned to them by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation.

Dàidalos Quartet

  • Anna Molinari (violin)
  • Paolo Vuono (violin)
  • Lorenzo Lombardo (viola)
  • Lucia Molinari (cello)

Quartetto Dàidalos was founded in Novara (Italy) in October 2014, by four friends desiring to deepen their study of chamber music. In spite of their young age, the quartet has already performed in several concerts, both in Italy and abroad, playing in outstanding venues (Teatro Ponchielli and Auditorium Arvedi in Cremona, Palazzo Rosso in Genova, Teatro Sociale in Como, Ludwigs Festspielhaus in Füssen, Helsinki IIC, San Francisco IIC) and for many important musical organizations (Società del Quartetto di Milano and Bergamo, Amici della Musica di Firenze, Musica Insieme Bologna and Unione Musicale in Torino). Between 2015 and 2018, they were studying at the Walter Stauffer Academy in Cremona under the guidance of the Quartetto di Cremona. Quartetto Dàidalos has attended masterclasses held by L. Dutton (Emerson Quartet), N. Prishepenko (Artemis Quartet), S. Bernardini (Berliner Philarmoniker), D. Waskiewicz, L. Hagen (Hagen Quartett) and S. Bresler (Jerusalem Quartet). They also attended summer masterclasses and ECMA sessions held by H. Beyerle, J. Meissl and P. Jüdt. During the ECMA session in Bern (November 2018) they had the privilege to play in the opening concert. As winners of the Piero Farulli Association Scholarship (Pépinière), they were invited to join the international project Le Dimore del Quartetto as one of the most talented young Italian string quartets. Quartetto Dàidalos was awarded a special prize by the Italian branch of the Federation Internationale des Jeunesses Musicales, which offered the ensemble several concerts in the upcoming seasons. Currently, they are studying under the guidance of Patrick Jüdt at the Hochschule der Künste in Bern.
