The Esmé Quartet, a string quartet formed of four young Korean women, made a sensational announcement of their presence on the international concert stage in April of 2018 by winning the first prize and four special prizes, at the prestigious London Wigmore Hall String Quartet International Competition. Praised for their warm sound, hyper-sensitive ensemble, and powerful stage presence, the quartet was formed in 2016 at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne, Germany, by four musicians that were long ago acquainted with each other as friends. The quartet have a busy season ahead of them and are currently studying for a Master of Chamber Music at the Musikhochschule Lübeck.
