In the short time since winning fi rst prize and sweeping four of the special prizes at the 2018 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London, the Esmé Quartet has made a sensational entrance into the string quartet world, performing at renowned concert halls and festivals around the world, and has been named the fi rst Artists-in-Residence at the Lotte Concert Hall, in Seoul, South Korea. Based in Germany, the quartet was formed in 2016 at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (Cologne), Germany, and is comprised of four Korean musicians who were already friends and shared common interests and passions in music, the arts, and life. The name of the quartet—Esmé—is borrowed from an old French word meaning “beloved.”
