- Castalian String Quartet
Over the last few years, the Castalian Quartet has won a number of awards that testify to its excellence within a crowded field; its programme comprises Britten’s 1945 masterpiece and a popular work by a composer Britten particularly loved. Schubert’s quartet refers to more than one of his songs, while its slow movement is a set of variations on a theme from his incidental music to the play Rosamunde.
Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
- String Quartet No. 2 in C Op. 36
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
