Description

About the Artists

Showered with awards and accolades since its formation in 2011, the London-based Castalian String Quartet has distinguished itself as one of the most dynamic, sophisticated young string quartets performing today.

“They’re terrific: violinists who seem capable of anything, layering a gleaming finish (often the key to a really luminous quartet sound) on a viola player with a tone like crushed velvet and a cellist who sounds like old gold” (The Spectator).

“The Castalian Quartet makes the simplest things we hear into the most important things we could ever want to hear…There were times that I simply could not believe my ears” (Calgary Herald).

“Their unique style – a powerful individuality of sound matched by an instinctive singularity of musical intention – lit up every single moment…amazing players” (The Scotsman).
