About the Castle Quartet:
After attending the chamber music programme at Domaine Forget (Quebec) together, the Castle Quartet gave their first performance in 2002 at the Magic Castle Chamber Music Festival in Westport, Ont. Since then, the four musicians have gone on to lead rich and varied musical careers.
Violinists Aisslinn Nosky and Julia Wedman are members of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, I FURIOSI Baroque Ensemble and the Eybler Quartet. Aisslinn is also the concertmaster of the Handel and Haydn Society Orchestra in Boston. Pemi Paull is in demand across Canada as a recitalist and chamber musician. In addition, he performs as a member of the Montreal-based ensembles Ensemble Caprice, Theatre of Early Music, Bradyworks, and the ensemble of the SMCQ. He is a founder and artistic director of the chamber music collective, Warhol Dervish. Carina Reeves is finding her musical stride after having two babies in less than two years. Chamber music is of course a beloved part of life, and now, through writing music for a short film, composition is her latest heartsong.

The Castle Quartet follows some of their favourite composers in their search to find their own unique creative voices: Arnold Schoenberg’s highly romantic Quartet in D; the enchanting “Rosamunde” variations from Schubert’s Quartet in A Minor; a work by Montreal composer Michael Oesterle inspired by the fascinating life of Second World War code-breaker Alan Turing; and a new work by Castle Quartet cellist Carina Reeves.
