The Cuarteto Casals performs at the Palau de la Música Catalana. One of the great Catalan music ensembles, backed by an impressive international career and the admiration of audiences and critics alike. The Cuarteto Casals has become a benchmark for new generations of musicians. 

 Their expressive, excellent musicianship takes on Schubert’s Death and the Maiden, one of the most beautiful string quartets of all time, based on a poem by Matthias Claudius about a dying young woman and her reactions to her imminent demise. 

Three snapshots of chamber music. Schubert's Death and the Maiden is joined by Haydn and Shostakovich; the former considered the father of string quartets as a musical genre, and the latter one of the Cuarteto Casals’ favourite composers.
