Cuarteto Casals Manuel Barrueco

“Poetry and youthful spirit” -Gramophone

A frequent guest at the world’s most prestigious concert venues, including Wigmore Hall, Musikverein Vienna, and the Cité de la Musique, the excellent Cuarteto Casals plays Haydn, Turina and Shostakovich—plus a new Roberto Sierra Fantasía that embroiders Luigi Boccherini’s colorful “Night Music.” The elegant guitarist Manuel Barrueco joins the Casals for Boccherini’s own “Fandango” Quintet.

This performance is SOLD OUT. However, a limited number of RUSH tickets is available, at no cost, 2 hours before each performance. Patrons are strongly encouraged to try for a RUSH ticket at the door. Due to no-shows and returned tickets, some seats are ALWAYS available for sold out performances at curtain.
