Described as ‘strikingly intelligent and expressive’ by The Strad, the Salomé Quartet are recognised for their heartfelt interpretations and electric sense of communication, and are quickly establishing a reputation as one of UK’s most exciting young string quartets.

Formed in 2016 by four prizewinning students at the Royal College of Music in London, the Salomé Quartet is a multinational ensemble whose members 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 the Wigmore Hall, Barbican Centre, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall in London.:

Members of the quartet are: Haim Choi (Korea), Coco Inman (British/Japan), Kasia Ziminska (London) and Shizuku Tatsuno (Japan).

In 2017 the quartet won the RCM String Quartet Competition, Helen Just & Susan Cornell Prize, Sacconi Quartet Prize, and has held Artistic Residencies at the Oundle School, Leighton House Museum and Greenwich Cutty Sark.

Pre-pandemic, the group performed 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. The quartet was invited to Keshet Eilon International Mastercourse in Israel and Trondheim Academy in Norway, Musethica Germany and Spain, as well as numerous festivals across the UK, including the Wye Valley Festival, Chiltern Arts Festival, Sacconi Festival, North Norfolk Festival and Highgate International Chamber Music Festival. They were also selected as finalists in the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition (the final round didn’t take place due to the pandemic).
