Salomé Quartet


Salomé Quartet is a multinational ensemble formed in 2016 by four prizewinning students of the Royal College of Music in London: Haim Choi (South Korea), Ines Delgado (Portugal), Kasia Ziminska (Poland) and Shizuku Tatsuno (Japan). The musicians have performed worldwide in venues including Muzikverein (Vienna), Mozarteum (Salzburg), Unesco Hall (Paris), Lutoslawski Concert Studio (Warsaw), Tel Aviv Opera House (Israel), as well as Wigmore Hall, Barbican Centre, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall in London.

In 2017 the quartet won the RCM String Quartet Competition, Helen Just & Susan Cornell Prize, Sacconi Quartet Prize, and was invited as Quartet in Residence at the Oundle School.

Last season saw the group perform around the UK and abroad, including Milton Court, Barbican Centre, Wigmore Hall, Sacconi Chamber Music Festival in Kent, and Tel-Aviv Opera House, among others, as well as an Artistic Residency at the Leighton House Museum. The quartet was invited to attend the prestigious Keshet Eilon International Mastercourse in Israel, and looks forward to a new residency at Greenwich Cutty Sark, and to performing as the Young Artist of the Chiltern Arts Festival and Highgate International Chamber Music Festival.

The ensemble enjoys performing new music by contemporary composers, and has recently premiered a piece by a Turner Prize winning artist, Martin Creed, at the O2 Forum. The group has worked with renowned musicians such as Mats Zetterqvist, Simon Rowland Jones, Paul Roczek, Chaim Taub, Garth Knox, Grigory Kalinovsky, and ensembles such as Sacconi, Chilingirian, Harlem, Austrian, Aviv, and Fitzwilliam Quartets.

Salomé Quartet are grateful for the generous support from the Leverhulme Trust, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Orpheus Award, Joan Weller & Jessie Sumner Scholarship and Talent Unlimited.
