Formed in 2011, the Castalian Quartet is rapidly emerging as an exciting voice on the international chamber music scene. Over the last few years the Quartet has won top prizes at major international competitions, 3rd Prize at the 2016 Banff International Quartet Competition, 1st Prize and three special awards at the 2015 Lyon International Competition, and in 2013 1st Prize and the Audience Prize at the Kammermusik Hannover Next Generation Competition. The Quartet has performed widely in Europe, with recent highlights including recitals at the Aldeburgh and East Neuk Festivals. The Quartet’s recital at the 2017 East Neuk Festival led to an immediate re-booking for two performances in the 2018 Festival.

 

They (the Castalian Quartet) have the finest musical sensibilities. I’ve worked with a number of fine young quartets … there is something very special and focused about this one. Simon Rowland-Jones
