Quatuor Tchalik

"Style, interaction, an approach suffused with a sense of humanity: Quatuor Tchalik's performances bear the signature of one of the great French quartets of the new generation!" ConcertClassic


"The quartet's playing is characterised by an undeniable ardour, but also by an energy that is always kept in check in the interest of balance, brilliance and intensity."


The Paris-based Quatuor Tchalik is notable not least because its members are four siblings. Raised in a Russian-French family in which music played a central role, they have been making music together since their earliest childhood. This early and intimate contact with chamber music has allowed the four young musicians to develop their own, entirely natural approach to expressive and versatile quartet playing, creating an extraordinary artistic connection between them.

​These qualities became obvious during the first international competition the ensemble participated in: at the 2018 International Mozart Competition in Salzburg, the Quatuor Tchalik caused a sensation, taking both the first prize and the special prize for the best interpretation of a Mozart string quartet.

Concerts have regularly taken the Quatuor Tchalik all over Europe, where it performs at the great musical centres of Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, and also to Asia, where it made its successful debut in China in 2019. In its French homeland, it is a regular and welcome guest at the Philharmonie in Paris, also making a much-acclaimed debut at the renowned Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris in 2021. Furthermore, the siblings regularly appear as a quintet, in which their brother, pianist Dania Tchalik, joins them.

​​On the Quatuor Tchalik's first album, entitled Short Stories and released in 2019, immediately winning the Choc de Classica award, it performs chamber music works by Thierry Escaich. In 2020 the Quatuor The ensemble’s second CD was dedicated to chamber music by Reynaldo Hahn, winning an ffff award from Télérama. A third CD featuring the quartets of Camille Saint-Saëns was released in September 2021, earning numerous enthusiastic reviews and another Choc de Classica award. The quartet's most recent CD, featuring works by Boris Tischchenko, received rave reviews from the international press immediately after its release in March 2023.
