“Their level of ensemble inter-connectedness in the Adès and at times in the subsequent movements of Brahms and Schumann was truly remarkable in evincing a physics most rare and special, overlaid with an emotional world of similarly surpassing sublimity. There were times that I simply could not believe my ears.”Calgary Herald / Banff International Competition / September 2016
Engagements this season 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 take part in the Banff Festival in Canada and tour throughout China and Colombia.
Future plans include debut concerts in North America (Phillips Collection Washington D.C. and Lincoln Center New York) and at the Konzerthaus in Vienna.
Formed in 2011, the Castalian String Quartet studied with Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet) at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media, graduating with a Master’s degree.
