A viola pathfinder has passed onmain
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.
