Kobayashi Hibiki (violin)
Started playing the violin at the age of two. In the spring of the age of 14, he was impressed by the performance of the Israel Philharmonic and went to Israel alone to study abroad. After 5 years of intense study, he studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, and for 3 years at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto (Canada), where he received special lessons from Mr. Roland Fenivesz and graduated at the top of his class.
In 1992, he was invited to join the Arthur Leblanc String Quartet.
He studied under Tomoko Suzuki, Koji Toyoda, Chaim Tauv, Roland Fenivesh, and Jose Luis Garcia. Since studying in Israel, he has participated in music festivals around the world, studied with Isaac Stern and Sandor Beeg in master classes, and had the opportunity to perform with famous musicians (Bashmet, Zuckerman, Berliner Philharmoniker). .
At the age of 16, she made her debut with her teacher, Haim Tauv, and has held numerous recitals. Brahms' complete recital in Japan in 2014 struck a chord with audiences and experts alike.
As a soloist, he has performed with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, the East Philharmonic Orchestra, the French National Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Czech Chamber Orchestra, the Haydn Philharmonic Orchestra, and others.
After joining the quartet, based in Canada, he has performed in the United States (Carnegie Hall), France, and Spain, and has performed with Janos Starker (cello), Dang Tai Son (piano), and Jörg Demus.
Winner of the Louvin Music Competition, Noguchi Award, Jeunesse Musical Award, Cecilmenard Pomelo Award, Opus Award, etc. With great support from the Canadian Cultural Association and the CBC, she is currently enrolled as a resident quartet at Laval University.
So far, in addition to the completed Shostakovich String Quartet, 5 CDs and DVDs have been released.
In 2021, he received support from the Arts Council of Canada for the "research and creation" of all 10 Beethoven sonatas for piano and violin, and has since realized the performance of all 8 songs as "concept to realization". .

Michelle Frank (piano)
From 1977 to 1981, he studied at the Juilliard School under pianist and eminent educator Adele Marcus.

He received numerous scholarships from the Arts Council of Canada and was awarded the Prix d'Europe in 1977 at the young age of 19.
Franck has performed as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist in major cities in Canada, the United States, France and Russia. As an educator, he has held numerous master classes and workshops on piano education, and his pursuit of teaching has never stopped. Many of his students have received scholarships, awards, and are active in the domestic and international music industry.
He has been a piano teacher and accompanist for 36 years at the Music Department of Séjap Sainte-Foy in Quebec City, Canada, but retired from the summer of 2017 to concentrate on his career as a pianist. Currently active as a freelance pianist, mainly in Canada and North America.
