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.

“They seize motives with the core of their sound and press them into a service of thematic contiguity that is enviable, like an orator who knows how to convince with both passion and persuasion. Castalian Quartet makes the simplest things we hear into the most important things we could ever want to hear” Calgary Herald 2016
