Born in South Korea, Gulrim Choï studied baroque cello in Paris with David Simpson, then in Brussels and Milan, before graduating with a Master’s degree with Christophe Coin in Basel, where she also delved deeper into improvised music with Fred Frith. In 2011 she was appointed principal cellist of the EUBO (European Union Baroque Orchestra). Since 2012 she has been principal cellist of Ensemble Diderot and performed throughout Europe with Les Ambassadeurs, Pygmalion, Concerto Copenhagen, Holland Baroque, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Dunedin Consort, Marsyas... With these groups she participated in over thirty recordings. Her curiosity naturally led her to the viola da gamba.
Her first solo recording was acclaimed by the critics (Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine, Diapason, Classica...). She plays a cello by J. Simpson (London, mid-eighteenth century).
