Three ensembles and a soloist descend on Taunton for an exciting opportunity to hear some of the highly talented musicians in the early stages of their career. ‘Rising stars’ is perhaps a misnomer is some cases: they have already risen (or risen further since we engaged them) and are already in demand by concert halls and festivals worldwide.

Castalian String Quartet: Formed in 2011, the Castalian Quartet enjoyed success on the competition circuit (prizes at Lyon, Hannover and Banff) and won awards from the Young Classical Artists Trust in 2016 and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust in 2018. They are now being signed up by promoters across Europe, Wigmore Hall among them.

A pre-concert talk by writer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson is included in the ticket price – this begins at 5.30pm, with the concert proper at 6.00pm.
