The quartet won the first prize at the Luigi NonoInternational Competition in Venaria Reale, Turin, and at the XXI Anemos International Competition in Rome. In 2014 they were awarded an honorable mention at the "Sony Classical Talent Scout" in Madesimo, Italy.
They received by La Fenice Theatre in Venice the "Arthur Rubinstein – Una Vita nella Musica 2015" Award for revealing itself in a few years as one of the most promising Italian chamber music group and for showing in a still brief career to be able to approach the great literature for string quartet in a mature manner, seeking a reasoned and not ephemeral interpretation in the masterpieces of the classic-romantic period and of the twentieth century, continuing at the same time a serious and not episodic research even within the language of the contemporary music.
In 2015 the quartet is awarded the "Piero Farulli" Prize, given to the best emerging chamber music group in the current year, as part of the XXXIV "Franco Abbiati" Award, the most prestigious Italian music critic award.
"Decisive and unanimous, the Noûs had the measure of the piece, as well as energy and clear heads."
