Artistic Directors

Since 2018, its members have been artistic directors of the Luberon International String Quartet Festival.


Since its inception, the group began winning an impressive series of prizes in international competitions: First Prize, unanimously awarded, at the 2010 Charles Hennen, First Prize at the 2011 BMJC Beijing International Chamber Music Competition and First Prize at the 2012 Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna. It was also awarded the Press Prize at the Bordeaux International Competition in 2010, in addition to being HSBC winners in 2010 and chosen to participate in the ECHO Rising Star programme in 2015.

The quartet thanks the music sponsorship of the Société Générale for the precious support imparted upon its inception.
The quartet became 'artist associate' in the Singer-Polignac foundation in paris in summer 2020.


Quatuor Zaïde has very regularly received valuable advice from Hatto Beyerle, Johannes Meissl, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Gordan Nikolic and Goran Gribajecvic, who they consider their mentors.


Since 2013, the group has been in close collaboration with the label NoMadMusic, with whom they created three albums quickly lauded by critics, notably awarded a “4 f” from Télérama for their Haydn album (2015) and the Choc Classica for their Franck-Chausson record (2017). Identity

It is a point of pride for the group not to specialize in any one repertoire, as they are convinced that the music of yesterday sheds light on the present, and that one cannot understand music of the past without living in today's. Instruments

Charlotte Maclet plays a Testore.

Leslie Boulin Raulet plays a violin from the Tononi school lent by the French Instrument Collection.

Sarah Chenaf plays an unsigned Italian viola from the 17th century.

Juliette Salmona plays a Claude-Augustin Miremont cello lent by theassociation ‘Les Amis du violoncelle.’

Bach feast
Some will say: Bach did not know string Quartet! And they will be right, however, is it a reason for the Quartet to ignore him?
We play Bach Suites,Sonatas and Partitas since our youngest age. We heard the Chorals, legendary, we sang them in choirs or sight read them to warm up with the quartet. The Inventions were omnipresent in music schools corridors.The Ricercare of the Musical Offering were, for some of us, discovered through the Webern's transcription of it. And the Art of Fugue, we always come back to it, to think about music, what is music, to go deeper to the source of our quartet repertoire, where it comes from, or just to have fun.
Every time we come back to Bach, we always try to discover new things, to listen in a different way, to open our ears even bigger. That is why, we would like to experiment with this only Bach programme; play with our own habits and with the audience's habits, an as an explorer we would like to go on an adventure and share it.

This programme has been thought through with a special light set and the four musicians will be exploring the space of the concert hall.
