VIOLIn and viola
Born in Grenoble, Charlotte Bonneton is a soloist and chamber musician who plays both the violin and the viola.
As a violinist she has performed as soloist in venues including the Maison de Radio France, the Auditorium du Louvre, the Salle Cortot, the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, the Festival Radio-France in Montpellier and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
As a concerto soloist she has appeared with orchestras including Orchestre National de Lorraine, Jyväskylä Sinfonia, Kazakh State Philharmonic Orchestra, Wroclaw Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum and the London Contemporary Orchestra.
Charlotte Bonneton is the violist of the Castalian String Quartet.
Winners of the 2015 Lyon International Chamber Music Competition and 3rd Prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition, the quartet has performed widely throughout Europe and will give its Carnegie Hall debut in March 2020, following last season’s debut tour of North America.
In amongst this very classical work, cross-genre music making is particularly important to Charlotte. A lover of dance, she is an ex member of both the Scottish Ballet Orchestra and Northern Ballet Sinfonia, and is as inspired by physical movement as she is by sound. Charlotte is also a member of The Storyteller's Ensemble–a group of musicians who put music to the written and spoken word of the acclaimed children's author, Michael Morpurgo.
