BANFF International String Quartet Competition 2019

  • BANFF Banff centre Canada (map)

The Ruisi Quartet is delighted to be one of only ten quartets worldwide selected for the Banff International String Quartet competition 2019.

The competition gives audiences an in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at the thrill and heartbreak of a live chamber music competition as 10 of the world’s best young string quartets vie for over $300,000 in cash and prizes, including a Career Development Grant for all 7 quartets not advancing to finals, to support their emerging careers before a remarkably dedicated chamber music audience. The triennial competition is a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions and is widely recognised among the top events of its kind.  

Earlier Event: July 29
Residency in Brel, France
Later Event: November 13
