Masterclass Vera Martinez Mehner (Casals Quartet)

Founded in 1997 at the Escuela Reina Sofía in Madrid, the Cuarteto Casals celebrated its 20th anniversary season with an especially ambitious, multi-year project: a six-concert series of the complete Beethoven quartets, accompanied by six commissioned works from composers of its generation, performed in cities throughout Europe, Asia and Latin America including London, Vienna, Berlin and Tokyo. Highlights of coming seasons include cycles of the complete late Mozart quartets as well as projects focusing on Hungarian composers Bartók, Ligeti and Kurtág.

Since winning First Prizes at the London and Brahms-Hamburg competitions, Cuarteto Casals has been a repeated guest at the world’s most prestigious concert halls including Carnegie Hall, Philharmonie Cologne, Cité de la Musique Paris, Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg and Concertgebouw Amsterdam, among many others around the world.

The quartet is currently ensemble in residence at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague.

Vera Martinez Mehner was born in Madrid, where she began to study the violin at age five. Upon turning twelve, she entered the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia, where she studied with Professors Serguei Fatkouline and Zakhar Bron, with whom she finished her studies at the Hochschule für Musik Köln.
