In 2020, The Guardian newspaper characterized the London-based Castalian String Quartet as a »group with drive, real personality and strong interpretive ideas«. For its third guest appearance at the Wiener Konzerthaus, the ensemble, which has won many awards since its founding in 2011, has brought in top-class reinforcement for Brahms' 2nd String Quintet in the form of Isabel Charisius, who served as violist of the legendary Alban Berg Quartet after the death of Thomas Kakuska. The other program is British, with works by Benjamin Britten and his successful young compatriot Charlotte Bray.

Burraway’s art installation Ungrievable Lives, comprises 13 children’s dresses, handmade from refugee lifejackets she gathered at the Lifejacket Graveyard in Lesvos - each dress, represents 1 million of the 13 million child refugees worldwide.
(This is pre the Ukraine war, there is now a further 2 million child refugees).
