Two months after the death of Jennifer Ward Clarke, much-loved cellist of the Salomon Quartet, we regret to report the death of Trevor Jones, the quartet’s founding viola player.

Founded in 1982, the Salmons were the first quartet to make recordings on period instruments in an 18th century set-up. The original formation on Hyperion Records was Simon Standage, violin; Micaela Comberti, violin; Trevor Jones, viola; Jennifer Ward Clarke, cello. Micaela died in 2003.

  • Tont Watts says:

    Sad to hear. Trevor taught me violin when I was at Magnus Grammar School in Newark Notts in the mid 60s and was always very supportive. He could also tell when I hadnt practiced for one of our weekly lessons together!
