Karel Bredenhorst (Den Haag, 1978) took his first cello-lessons at the age of 12 with Wouter Mijnders and Jet van Baaren. Karel studied in Holland with Monique Bartels at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and with Paul Uyterlinde at the Conservatory of Enschede. In Germany Karel continued his studies with Troels Svane at the Musikhochschule in Lübeck, where he graduated the soloist class with distinction.
Karel won several prizes with his former string quartet En-Accord. In 2000 En-Accord won a 2nd prize and the audience-prize at the the Princess Christina Competition and in 2001 a 3rd prize at the International Charles Hennen Chambermusic Competition. Since 2003 the quartet is studying at the NSKA (Dutch String Quartet Academy) and is frequently coached by Stefan Metz.
