“Winning the WFISC was the real start of my professional career, as I was given extremely valuable opportunities which led to further engagements, such as performance with the Philharmonia Orchestra, professional CD recording, BBC Radio appearances, many recital engagements and even a chance to perform to HRH The Prince Edward.

The competition is now widely known as the most important international competition for string players in the UK, and I believe with confidence that the WFISC is truly the one every young string player around the globe who has the ambition to be professional should go through!"

Yuki Ito, First Prize Winner 2011
