Named 2019 Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist of the Year, the Castalian String Quartet’s recent and forthcoming highlights include debut invitations to such venues as Carnegie Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, Paris Philharmonie, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Aldeburgh and Dresden festivals.
Formed in 2011, the Quartet studied with Oliver Wille of the Kuss Quartet at the Hannover Hochschule für Musik. In 2016 they were selected by the Young Classical Artists Trust and, more recently, were named recipients of the inaugural Merito String Quartet Award/Valentin Erben Prize and a 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.
This concert forms part of the Hans Keller String Quartet Residency at the Oxford University Faculty of Music. The Faculty are grateful for the generosity of The Cosman Keller Art & Music Trust for their donation to the Castalian String Quartet to support this concert.
