10nov20:00The Casals Quartet20:00


At the turn of the millennium, the Strad Magazine harboured no doubts: The Casals Quartet from Madrid had made their impression as one of the great new string quartets. “A quartet for the new millennium if I ever heard one,” they wrote. The ensemble was awarded first prizes both in London and Hamburg, and it has toured Wigmore, Carnegie, Concertgebouw, the concert hall of the Berlin Philharmonics and all the other great venues.

This is the first time that a Spanish string quartet makes a proper international impact, and this accomplished ensemble has accompanied the Spanish royals on diplomatic journeys on several occasions, and it goes without saying that they have performed at the royal palace in Madrid.

There is a drop of Spanish sweetness in the programme in the form of Granados’ romance after the intermission, and in combination with Schubert, Shostakovich and Ravel it will be a complete quartet evening.
