NOVO Quartet Wins €68,000 Grant from the Danish Arts Foundation

Over the course of the two-year grant, the group will undertake ambitious touring and recording


The NOVO Quartet has recently been named as one of the groups who will participate in the two-year "Young Artistic Elite" program from 2024-26, run by the Danish Arts Foundation (Statens Kunstfond).

At the heart of the program is a grant of €68,000, which the quartet will use to undertake ambitious touring and recording — as well as growing their chamber music festival.

Comprising violinists Kaya Kato Møller and Nikolai Vasili Nedergaard, violist Daniel Śledziński, and cellist Signe Ebstrup Bitsch, the NOVO Quartet formed in Copenhagen in 2018.

The quartet is presently undertaking graduate studies at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Vienna with Professor Johannes Meissl. They are former major prize winners at the Carl Nielsen, Irene Steels-Wilsing Foundation, Concours de Genève, and Trondheim International Chamber Music Competitions.

The group previously studied with Professor Tim Frederiksen at The Royal Danish Academy of Music, and their mentors include members of the Alban Berg, Artemis, and Danish String Quartets.

"We are incredibly honored to share that we have been selected by The Danish Arts Foundation (Statens Kunstfond) for ‘The Young Artistic Elite’ program 2024-26!" the group wrote. "This extraordinary € 68,000 grant will significantly boost our growth and will allow us to embark on numerous exciting projects, expand our ideas, and share our work globally."

"This marks a monumental milestone for our quartet, and we’re eager for what lies ahead! A big thanks to Statens Kunstfond for the recognition — numerous doors have now swung wide open."
