About This Show

Cuarteto Casals has quickly become recognized as one of Europe’s most distinguished string quartets. This Spanish ensemble has garnered extensive critical acclaim and has won top prizes at many international competitions, including First Prizes at the 2000 London and the 2002 Johannes Brahms International String Quartet Competitions. In 2006 it received the National Music Award — the highest distinction for musicians in Spain — and in 2008 was chosen for the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in England. In addition, the quartet has accompanied the King and Queen of Spain on official state visits, performing for the Grand Duke of Luxembourg as well as at the Palacio Real in Madrid, on the Royal Family’s priceless collection of matched Stradivarius instruments.
Program includes Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 4 in C minor, Opus 18; Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 9 in Eb, Opus 117 and Schubert’s Quartet for Strings No. 13 in A minor, D804, Opus 29, “Rosamunde.”
