Founded some twenty years ago to encourage the love of serious music especially amongst the young, we provide live music in different genres performed by highly gifted professional artistes, many of whom have international recognition.   Probably no other local venue provides such recitals on a regular basis throughout the year and at a very reasonable expense.

Why travel to London when this quality of musical satisfaction can be found so close to home?

Biography:
Castilian Quartet

Formed in 2011, the Castalian Quartet studied with Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet) at the Hannover University of Music, Dance and Theatre, graduating with a Masters. They have also worked with Thomas Brandis, Levon Chilingirian, Simon Rowland-Jones and members of the Endellion Quartet.

In 2015 the Quartet won 1st Prize and three special awards at the Lyon International Competition and in 2013 1st Prize and the Audience Prize at the Kammermusik Hannover Next Generation Competition. They were the only European quartet to progress to the live rounds of the 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition.

The Quartet has performed widely throughout Europe. Engagements this season include recitals at Wigmore Hall, the Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, the Sparkassenforum Mittagskonzerte in Hannover, Quartetaffairs in Frankfurt (broadcast by NDR), the Festival de Musique de Conques in France, Festival Autunno Musicale Naples and Turin Chamber Music Series. They return to Aldeburgh and will be Artist in Residence at the Festival Musique d'Été à Suzette near Avignon.
