Biography

François Salque is recognised as one of the most stunning cellists of his generation. His profound musical thinking and phenomenal technique have earned him many prestigious awards: François is a prize-winner at such international competitions as Lausanne (Unanimous First Prize), Geneva (2nd Prize), ARD Munich, Tchaikovsky in Moscow… He was each time given the highest distinctions ever awarded to a French cellist in the histories of these competitions.

His outstanding talent was equally recognised in the United-States where he won a Master of Music degree at Yale University as well as no less than six First Prizes in international competitions. In France, he won the First Prize of the “Hommage to Paul Tortelier and Maurice Gendron” International Competition and the Pierre Fournier Prize.
