Last night Behn Quartet (musicians from Holland, the UK and New Zealand) was awarded the first prize, the Charles Hennen Prize, in the Orlando Competition 2017. This year’s edition was being held for international string quartets. During the well visited final round, held in the Limburgzaal of Parkstad Limburg Theatre Heerlen, the Behn Quartet played impressive interpretations of the most recent work of Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies (2016) and String Quartet no. 2, ‘Intimate Letters’ of Janáček.
