The Quatuor Ebène has named Marie Chilemme as its new viola player.

She replaces Adrien Boisseau, 26, who quit suddenly after two years to pursue a solo career.

New lineup:


  • Theodore McGuiver says:

    Quite a musical family. Her brother is a well-established violinist and their father an accomplished singer and choirmaster. More power to their collective elbow.

    • Domingo Mujica says:

      Hello Mr. McGuiver,
      Just to add a little information about Marie Chilemme, her mother who has been the brain of building Guillaume and Marie’s musical career is been a piano teacher at the CRR in Toulouse for at least 33 years.
      I believe she should be mentioned too.
      Veronique Grange.

  • Domingo Mujica says:

    I’m also very Happy for Marie, she is a fantastic violist and The Ebene SQ have recruit a great musician, wishing them the best and long life to their colabaration together. DM
