  • 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.
