Rivka Golani (viola) is recognised as one of the outstanding violists of modern times. Her contributions to the advancement of viola technique have already given her a place in the history of the instrument and have been a source of inspiration not only to other players but also to the many composers who have been inspired by her mastery to write for the viola. More than 350 works have so far been composed for Rivka, including over 80 concertos: a record matched by no other violist in history.

She has performed as a soloist with many of the world’s most prominent orchestras: BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Hallé Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebow, Royal Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, Jerusalem Radio Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan, Montreal Symphony, Toronto Symphony, and countless others. She also has performed as a soloist three times at the Promenade concerts in London, including the last night of the Proms.

Tadasuke Ilijima (violin) was born in Japan, and has previously studied under the guidance of Hitoshi Maezawa, Boris Kuschnir, Toshiya Eto, Zakhar Bron and Mayumi Fujikawa. He has also studied under the direction of Rivka Golani at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
He has won numbers of competitions, including the highest award at the Tokyo’s “New Stars of Music” Competition, First Prize at the Toshiya Eto Violin Competition, First Prize in the Soloist Competition with the Hamamatu Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Special Prize for performing a Contemporary Piece at the Heifetz International Violin Competition, and First Prize at the Uralsk International Violin Competition. He also awarded the Harold Craxton Prize, and David Martin Concerto Prize at Royal Academy of Music, and the Vera Kantrovich Prize, Vivian Joseph Classical Concerto competition, and the Trinity Laban Soloist's Competition.

Michael Hampton (piano) performs regularly on major stages around the world, including the Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall, and is broadcast frequently on radio. He works both as a soloist and chamber musician, equally at home in both instrumental and song repertoire. Since graduating from the Royal College of Music in 1999, he has established himself as one of the leading young artists in his field.
