Gulrim Choï



Born in 1989 in South Korea, Gulrim started playing music in France. After graduating in modern cello in 2005 she discovered jazz and free improvisation and has worked with numerous artists such as Joëlle Léandre, Peter Brötzmann, Barre Phillips, and Lê Quan Ninh.

She rapidly became interested in historical performance and started studying baroque cello in Paris with David Simpson, then in Brussels and Milan, before graduating with a Master degree with Christophe Coin in Basel, where she also goes deeper into improvised music with Fred Frith.


In 2011 Gulrim was the principal cellist of the EUBO (European Union Baroque Orchestra). She now appears within various orchestras and chamber music 

ensembles on historical instruments in Europe, performing with 

Ensemble Diderot, Les Ambassadeurs, Pygmalion, Holland Baroque, 

Irish Baroque Orchestra, Gli Incogniti, Dunedin Consort, 

Concerto Copenhagen, Cappella Mediterranea.

With these groups she has also released over 20 recordings.

Gulrim plays a cello by J. Simpson (London, mid 18th c.), 

a French anonymous (Mirecourt, mid 19th c.), 

and a cello made by Joël Klépal (after G. Guarneri filius Andrea, 1692).
