The Simply Quartet is constantly searching for a deep understanding of the inherent language of music: from early classical works to modern string quartet literature. They place great emphasis on connecting the three contrasting cultures (China, Austria, Norway) from which they draw, in order to develop their own musical language; by engaging with works from each of their cultures, they deepen their knowledge of different sound worlds. The quartet has already been awarded four first prizes at prestigious chamber music competitions: at the International Carl Nielsen Competition in Copenhagen & the "Quatuor á Bordeaux" in 2019, the "Franz Schubert and the Music of the Modern" in Graz in 2018, and in 2017 at the International Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna.
