The Castilian Quartet have been chosen to be represented by YCAT in 2016. In 2011 they received the EFT prize at the Royal Over-Seas League competition and we’ve been following their progress and success with great interest since. At the YCAT finals they gave an outstanding performance of Bartók’s String Quartet No.6. Congratulations!
