Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux

Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux had an early start when she begged her parents for a violin at the age of two. At Montpellier’s Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional she was taught by François Gilles and Aude Périn-Dureau, and she has received masterclasses from violinists including Ana Chumachenco, Zakhar Bron, Pavel Vernikov, Olivier Charlier, Alina Ibragimova and András Keller.

In 2009, Charlotte entered the Yehudi Menuhin School to study with Natalia Boyarsky and is further pursuing her studies at the Royal College of Music in a shared class between Natalia and Alina Ibragimova, as a recipient of the Geoff and Carole Lindey Award. 

Charlotte won the Royal College of Music Violin competition in 2016, and was also awarded the Bach prize. She was previously prize-winner in the international Postacchini competition, Thomas Kuti European prize and Ginette Neveu competition.

She recently participated in the International Musicians Seminar masterclasses and the Open Chamber Music Seminar in Cornwall and at the Santander Encuentro Festival. Her upcoming engagements include appearances with her Duo, Trio and Quartet both in France and UK, and as a soloist in Budapest.

She is currently playing on a Giovani Batista Ceruti violin, kindly loaned to her by the Royal College of Music.
