Among the three finalists, Navarra Quartet (UK/Ireland/The Netherlands), Quatuor Cavatine (France) and Dover Quartet (USA), the latter won First Prize in the International String Quartet Competition in Banf. Joel Link and  Bryan Lee, violin, Milena Pajaro, viola, and Camden Shaw, violoncello, formed their ensemble at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2008, when they were just 19 years old. The Quartet draws from the musical lineage of both the Vermeer and Guarneri Quartets, but is also said to bring ‘a youthful enthusiasm and musical conviction to the repertoire that is truly its own’.
