"Meet the Artists" Wine Reception Following Concert
Founded in 1997 at the Escuela Reina Sofía in Madrid, the Cuarteto Casals celebrated its 20thanniversary season with an especially ambitious, multi-year project: a six-concert series of the complete Beethoven quartets, accompanied by six commissioned works from composers of its generation, performed in cities throughout Europe, Asia and Latin America including London, Vienna, Berlin and Tokyo. Highlights of coming seasons include cycles of the complete late Mozart quartets as well as projects focusing on Hungarian composers Bartók, Ligeti and Kurtág. Since winning First Prizes at the London and Brahms-Hamburg competitions, Cuarteto Casals has been a repeated guest at the world’s most prestigious concert halls including Carnegie Hall, Philharmonie Cologne, Cité de la Musique Paris, Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg and Concertgebouw Amsterdam, among many others around the world.
