Spain’s best string quartet celebrates with Russian star pianist

The musicians of the renowned Cuarteto Casals have shared the stage for more than twenty years. Joseph Haydn, the father of the string quartet, simply had to be present at this anniversary celebration! With great stylistic flexibility, the quartet switch between Haydn's classical nods and Brahms's heroic trials of strength. And who better for them to involve in this adventure than Alexander Melnikov, one of the most style-conscious pianists of his generation?
