The Beethoven Project 3: Elias String Quartet
"The Elias Quartet continue their presentation of all of Beethoven's quartets with a programme which includes the first of the 'late' quartets, Op 127. The Op 18 work contains many humorous touches whilst the musicians at the premiere of the first Rasumovksy quartet in 1807 felt that Beethoven was playing a joke on them. In response he declared that the music was 'not for them but for a later age'.
The Elias Quartet's Beethoven Quartets cycle is supported by the Friends of Turner Sims."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
The Elias String Quartet are originally from France, Scotland and Sweden and take their name from Mendelssohn's oratorio, Elijah (Elias in its German form). The quartet formed in 1998 at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where they worked regularly with the late Dr Christopher Rowland. They also spent a year studying at the Hochschule in Cologne with the Alban Berg Quartet.
'The emotional chemistry here was manifestly unusual... pure magic' (The Sunday Telegraph)
'The Elias String Quartet should not really be called a quartet. Although they are four string players, they don't play as four separate musicians but instead as one musical force to be reckoned with. Their performance was beautifully synchronised into one glorious interpretation of Beethoven's String Quartet No 15' (The Herald Scotland)
'The Elias is a quite exceptional quartet' (Gramophone Magazine).
