The Castalian Quartet, currently a quartet-in-residence at the University of Oxford, is gaining renown for interpretations “full of poetry, joy and sorrow, realized to such perfection” (The Observer).  

In their Celebrity Series debut, the Castalian Quartet unveils a diverse repertoire that showcases their versatility and depth. From the nuanced moods, rich allusions, and intricate textures of Schubert to Kurtág’s collection of disparate miniature sound worlds; and from the sprightly and stately dances by Coleridge-Taylor to Beethoven’s Serioso Quartet, full of experimental techniques that set the stage for the composer’s later period, their program is a vivid journey through the landscape of classical music. 

Experience the extraordinary talent of this next-generation quartet when they appear on the Debut Series!

“The Castalian Quartet makes the simplest things we hear into the most important things we could ever want to hear.... There were times that I simply could not believe my ears.”
