The Seven Last Words of Christ - Casals Quartet

The Casals Quartet’s playing has been described as refreshing and exhilarating. But today they dive deep into Haydn’s powerful musical meditations on suffering, loss – and redemption. 

Haydn’s Seven Last Words are more than just a series of beautiful and moving musical reflections on timeless and tragic themes. They’re a test of any string quartet’s ability to find a deeper meaning beneath the notes they play.

So they’re perfect for the Casals Quartet’s fresh but searching approach, and their intense emotional commitment to everything they play. Haydn imagined this cycle of Passiontide pieces being performed in a grotto draped in black, lit by a single lantern – but this superb Spanish ensemble never fails to generate its own sense of musical drama, which will be further heightened by the poetry and readings interwoven with the music.
