Breakup: Top quartet adds two new playersmain
The Artemis Quartet has chosen violinist Suyoen Kim and cellist Harriet Krijgh to replace two departing members – the American violinist Anthea Kreston and cellist Eckart Runge, the quartet’s last founding member.
Kim, 31, German born, has been concertmaster of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin for the past year.
Krijgh, 27, who is Dutch, will release her debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon later this year.
The remaining members are violinist Vineta Sareika and violist Gregor Sigl. The reconstituted quartet will play its 30th anniversary concerts later this year.
