First prize winner at the London and Hamburg (Brahms) international competitions, Quartet Casals has become one of the leading string quartets of its generation. It has performed regularly at Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Musikverein in Vienna, Kölner Philarmonie, Cité de la Musique Paris, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and the Berlin Philharmonic. The quartet has been profoundly influenced by its work with contemporary composers such as György Kurtág, and has given the world premieres of works by leading Spanish composers. The highlights of his upcoming seasons include Mozart's ten last quartets and other projects focusing on the Hungarian composers Bartók, Ligeti and Kurtág. He has been recognized as a cultural ambassador by the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Institut Ramon Llull.
