Rapidly emerging as an exciting voice on the chamber music scene, the Castalian Quartet visits The Stoller Hall for a mini-residency of three concerts in the 2017-18 season.

Formed in 2011 and selected by YCAT in 2016, the quartet were the only Europeans to progress to the live rounds of the Banff International Quartet Competition the same year.  Previous winners of the Lyon and Kammermusik Hannover competitions, they studied with Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet) at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media, and have since performed across Europe including Aldeburgh, East Neuk, Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Quartetaffairs (Frankfurt)  and Turin Chamber Music Series.

Future engagements include performances of the complete Haydn Op. 76 Quartets at Wigmore Hall, and concerts in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Heidelberger Frühling Festival, and Zwischentöne Festival in Engelberg.  Further afield they tour China, the US, Canada and Columbia.

“The revelation, though, was the silvery playing of the Castalians in a relatively early Quartet (D353) by the 19-year-old Schubert, in which first violinist Sini Simonen’s intonation-perfect spirit highlighted her role within the ensemble” ArtsDesk 2017
