The Castalian Quartet is rapidly emerging as an exciting voice on the international chamber music scene. In 2016 they were the only European quartet to progress to the live rounds of the Banff International Quartet Competition where they won 3rd Prize. Previous awards include 1st Prize at the 2015 Lyon and 2013 Kammermusik Hannover Competitions.
Formed in 2011, the Castalian Quartet studied with Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet) at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media, graduating with a Masters.
Future engagements include performances of the complete Haydn Op.76 Quartets at Wigmore Hall, and concerts in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Heidelburger Frũhling Festival, and Zwischentöne Festival in Engelberg. Further afield they tour China, the US, Canada and Columbia.
The Quartet has performed widely in Europe, recent highlights including recitals at the Aldeburgh and East Neuk Festivals, Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Quartetaffairs in Frankfurt (broadcast by NDR) and Turin Chamber Music Series.
Presented with and generously supported by Strings Attached.
