Castalian String Quartet

HAYDN String Quartet in D major, Op. 20, No. 4
KAIJA SAARIAHO Terra Memoria
SCHUBERT String Quartet in G major, D. 887

The London-based Castalian Quartet, “a feisty group, with a real personality and strong interpretative ideas” (The Guardian), has distinguished itself as one of the most energetic and sophisticated young string quartets performing today. Recently named quartet-in-residence at the Oxford University Faculty of Music, the ensemble is also a 2019 recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award. The Castalian makes its Cal Performances debut with a wide-ranging program spanning 200 years, from Haydn’s bold D major quartet from his Op. 20 set to Schubert’s restless and luminous final quartet, to contemporary Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s haunting Terra Memoria.

This performance is made possible, in part, by the E. Nakamichi Foundation.
