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, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Philarmonie de Berlín and the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg. 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. During this season it will be performing the complete Beethoven quartets in London, Berlin, Vienna, Tokyo, Turin, Madrid, and Barcelona, after having performed them for the first time at the Schubertiade Vilabertran in 2017.
