Be prepared to be amazed at the different materials that can be used on string instruments to create new and interesting textures and sounds! 


As Espoir Quartet has been playing together for a year, you can look forward to their friendship and chemistry on stage. Its musicians hail from four different countries, brought together by music.


They will be covering 20th century music and performing works by Southeast Asian composers, such as esteemed Singapore composer Chen Zhang Yi and the well-regarded Malaysian composer Adeline Wong.

Espoir Quartet is a string quartet based in Singapore, formed by musicians from Venezuela, Malaysia, Taiwan and Korea. Currently mentored by the T’ang Quartet in the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (YST), Espoir Quartet has also worked in masterclasses with Miró Quartet, Kam Ning, Assoc Prof Curt Thompson and others. 'Espoir' means hope in French, and the quartet hopes to bring you along in their musical journey and to share their music as much as possible. The Espoir Quartet has performed and recorded works such as the Beethoven String Quartet No. 4 in C Minor and Singaporean composer Chen Zhang Yi's String Nonet Twin Cinema, together with T'ang Quartet in March 2023. The group has also represented YST in a tribute farewell dinner to Professor Ho Teck Hua of the National University of Singapore. In November 2023, Espoir Quartet also presented their first ever recital featuring Beethoven and Shostakovich string quartets.
