Success for Cavaleri Quartet

Monday 1 October 2012


The Cavaleri Quartet, founded at the RCM by Anna Harpham, Ann Beilby, Ciaran McCabe and Rowena Calvert, has triumphed at the second ICMC International Chamber Music Competition in Hamburg.

Not only did they take away the 20.000 Euros First Prize, they also won the 10.000 Euros Oscar and Vera Ritter Foundation Prize for the best performance of a work by Mendelssohn.

Following their victories they were invited to perform at the Awards Ceremony and Final Concert, which was broadcast live on NDR Kultur, and to make a commercial CD recording. The quartet is now looking forward to undertaking a concert tour of Germany.

The ICMC International Chamber Music Competition attracts some of the world’s best chamber groups. Many congratulations to the Cavaleri Quartet for this fantastic achievement.
