The Castalian Quartet is rapidly emerging as an exciting voice on the international music scene. 


Formed in 2011 they studied with Oliver Wille (Kuss quartet) at the Hannover University of Music, Dance and Theatre, graduating with a Masters.  They have also worked with Thomas Brandis, Levon Chilingirian, Simon Rowland-Jones and members of the Endellion Quartet.

In 2013 the Quartet won 1st prize and Audience Prize at the Kammermusik Hannover Next Generation Competition and in 2015 won 1st prize and three special awards at the Lyon International Competition. They were selected by YCAT in 2016 and were the only European quartet to progress to live rounds of the Banff International String Quartet Competition where they won 3rd Prize.

The Quartet has performed widely throughout Europe and will be Artist in Residence at the Festival Musique d'Été à Suzette near Avignon. The programme they are to perform for us will be their entry for the Borciani competition in Italy which takes place during the week following our concert.
