Cuarteto Casals Begins First Schubert Cycle
When it began fifteen years ago, Cuarteto Casals' first major undertaking was to perform all 15 of Schubert's string quartets in Barcelona. For the first time since 1998, the quartet will revisit this rarely heard cycle of these most intimate works. Over three weeks Cuarteto Casals will perform Schubert's complete string quartets, the ‘Trout' Quintet and the Cello Quintet, as well as the complete works for quartet by Anton Webern, including his little known first attempts in the genre. Over the course of the 2012-13 season, Cuarteto Casals will repeat the Schubert cycle in Vilabertrán, Schwarzenberg, London, Lisbon, Florence and Munich.
