Introducing the Castalian’s new violist: Ruth Gibson
It gives us tremendous joy to announce that violist Ruth Gibson will be joining the Castalian String Quartet from next month.
An extraordinary musician and treasured friend, Ruth is someone we have known and admired for many years; nothing could feel more natural than to call her a ‘Castalian’. Hot off the heels of her critically acclaimed BBC Proms debut, our first concert together will feature Schubert’s monumental G major quartet in Budapest on October 20th, followed by performances in Leeds, Oxford and on both coasts of the USA in November!
Of course this also means saying a tearful, loving farewell—after ten incredible years—to Charlotte Bonneton. Words cannot express what Charlotte means to us, but we would like to take this opportunity to say ‘Thank you Chaz’—you will forever remain our dearest friend, a constant inspiration, and start your new life between Switzerland and London with all our love.
Sini, Daniel & Chris
“It is a real honour to be joining the Castalian String Quartet. Their imagination, sensitivity and integrity to music making has always resonated with me and I feel incredibly lucky to join a group I have admired for so long. After an unimaginable 18 months for us all, I couldn’t think of a more exciting new chapter ahead.”
