Verified profile

Portuguese violinist Inês Delgado is currently pursuing a Masters Degree at the Royal College of Music in London, generously supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Scholarship Award. Particularly passionate about chamber music and orchestra, Inês is a member of the prizewinning Salomé Quartet and the Aida Duo (violin and piano), having participated in numerous festivals and performed in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, and others. Inês has collaborated with renowned orchestras such as the EUYO, the Philharmonia, Oxford Philharmonic, Covent Garden Sinfonia, amongst others. Inês is currently on trial with the Ulster Orchestra for the position of Second Violin Section Leader. She is the winner of the 2020/2021 London Philharmonic Foyle Future Firsts Scheme. Her interests go beyond performing classical music: Inês is passionate about education - particularly about empowering adults to learn music -, psychology and music-therapy, the latter being the topic for her final year Research Project Master’s thesis this year, specifically on music and dementia. She frequently enjoys performing for older adults in care homes and for people with dementia, which the young violinist thoroughly enjoys, as she believes it is the artists' duty to take their art further and give it a wider purpose.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My character is what seems to stand out the most during my performances: my clients and audience members often highlight my natural positivity (as I do smile a lot!) and my passion when I play the violin.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

As a chamber musician, concert venues include a great number of the major London venues: the Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Kings Place, Milton Court Hall at the Barbican Centre, among others.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I have a very diverse artistic background, and that aspect surely influenced my open-mindedness and curiosity about all types of music and art. I enjoy listening to music from Classical to Blues, Rock to Jazz, African to Grunge, and I really love this about myself!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Performing at the Wigmore Hall with my string quartet, the Salomé Quartet. It was a memorable experience because I go to the Wigmore Hall so often as they have the most amazing musicians performing in their gorgeous stage every day, so being able to perform in that same stage was a dream come true.

Do you have different line-up options?

I can perform as a solo violinist, and I am also part of the Salomé Quartet (www.salomequartet.com) who is also happy to consider booking for events - you can find more about us on our website!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to arrive at least 30 minutes to 1 hour before the start of the event, to get to know the space and the acoustics.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course! I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event, and I will be happy to consider your own suggestions.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes! I bring my own instrument to play acoustically and my music stand.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you! There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

From the moment I heard Inês play, it was clear that she has something special; her lyrical musicality and professionalism, coupled with boundless enthusiasm when performing makes her a joy to watch. I always look forward to her performances, as she puts so much of herself into them, making each one magical and uniquely precious.
