Vindtro Wind Quintet was launched in the spring of 2020 as a cosy project during the first Corona lockdown. The quintet then continued at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, where they all studied with Max Artved as supervisor. Vindtro Wind Quintet consists of flautist Kristin Ýr Jónsdóttir (1996, Iceland), clarinettist Kamilla Bentzen (2002, Norway), hornist Julie Norén Solevad (1998) and bassoonist Harald Tørning Svendsen. The quintet are winners of the “Nordic Wind Chamber Music Competition” 2021 in Oslo. The money that comes with the Léonie Sonning Talent Prize will be used by Vindtro for continued development as a wind quintet, with masterclasses, coaching, courses, and private lessons with some of the world’s foremost chamber musicians.
