Castalian String Quartet

St. John’s Kirk, Perth

Winner of the 2011 Royal Overseas League Elias Fawcett Award for an outstanding chamber music ensemble, the Castalian String Quartet was formed in London in 2010 by multi-award winning graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Academy of Music and Eastman School of Music, USA. They are rapidly gaining a reputation at festivals and concert halls in the UK and abroad for their “phenomenal impact on audiences”.

The Castalian Quartet is currently studying with Oliver Wille in Hannover, Levon Chilingirian and with Thomas Brandis at the Royal Academy of Music, where they hold the 2011/12 Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship. They have had master classes with Levon Chilingirian, Garfield Jackson, and members of the Kuss and Skampa Quartets.
