LUDWIG QUARTET

Jean-Philippe Audoli, violin I
Elenid Owen, violin II
Padrig Fauré, viola
Anne Copéry, cello

Since its formation in 1985, the Quatuor Ludwig has established itself as one of the leading quartets of its generation. Originally meeting at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, the musicians soon decided to devote themselves exclusively to performing as a string quartet. This led them to work with some of the most renowned contemporary quartets, including the Amadeus, Berg, Kolisch and LaSalle Quartets. The Quatuor Ludwig was the first French quartet to become quartet-in-residence at an American university, when they were invited to Yale by the Tokyo Quartet in 1988. Distinguishing itself as prizewinner in the Florence International Chamber Music Competition and laureate of the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation in Paris in 1986, the Quatuor Ludwig went on to win a special prize at the 1988 Portsmouth International String Quartet Competition for its interpretation of Henri Dutilleux’s quartet Ainsi la nuit. From 1991 to 1994 the ensemble was quartet-in-residence at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, the first post of its kind in France, and helped form and coach chamber music ensembles. The Quatuor Ludwig has toured extensively, performing in major venues throughout the world, from Paris to London and from New York to Taiwan. The quartet’s recordings of the works of Jehan Alain and of music by Honegger have been awarded a number of important prizes, and in April 1997 the Quartet won the Arthur Honegger International Chamber Music Competition.
