Since winning First Prizes at the London and Brahms-Hamburg competitions, the Casals Quartet consistently brings its lively energy and impeccable precision to each of its programs, with this chamber performance being no exception.
A prize from the prestigious Burletti-Buitoni Trust in London enabled the quartet to begin a collection of matching Baroque and Classical period bows which it uses for works from Purcell through Schubert, refining its ability to distinguish between diverse musical styles.
