The London-based Hattori Foundation for Music and the Arts has today announced the 2017 Hattori Foundation Senior Award bursary recipients - including 5 UK-based string players.

Awarded annually to instrumentalists and ensembles aged 21 and 27 who show outstanding promise for an international career, this year’s recipients include:

This year’s 11 bursary recipients will receive a share of the £42,500 (US $55,471) total fund - to be used to attend masterclasses, assist with travel expenses for competitions and to aid with living costs during their studies.

"We are thrilled to be supporting these exceptionally talented artists during 2017/18 at such key stages of their professional development," Foundation Chair Erich Gruenberg has said.
