Judith van Driel

Judith van Driel studied violin with Kees Koelmans and Peter Brunt at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. She also in Vienna with Günter Pichler of the Alban Berg Quartet for a year, and participated in the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Academy for a year.

Judith is a member of the Dudok Quartet, a creative and versatile string quartet known for its inventive and daring programmes that forge and explore new pathways and connections in music, in a repertoire that ranges from Ligeti, Shostakovich and Weinberg to Mendelssohn, Mozart and Beethoven.

The quartet studied with members of the Alban Berg Quartett at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne and continued their studies with Marc Danel at the Netherlands String Quartet Academy. The ensemble has since won a number of important awards, including the 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and prizes at the International String Quartet Competition in Bordeaux and at the Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition in Weimar. In 2014, the quartet received the prestigious Kersjes Prize.

In addition to her life on the concert stage, Judith is an enthusiastic teacher who has enjoyed teaching children aged 6 to 19 for many years.
