  • Castalian String Quartet

Winner of the Young Artist category at the 2019 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards, the Castalian String Quartet continues its Brahms series with two of the composer's quartets Op. 51 (1865-73) on either side of Schumann’s final quartet of his set of three (1842). Prior to the Op. 51 works, Brahms had apparently composed as many as 20 quartets – all subsequently destroyed because they failed to meet his high standards.
