Britain's leading young chamber ensemble, the Elias String Quartet, brings its phenomenal sound to Australia in August. These history-making performances include the latest instalment in the Quartet's immense undertaking to play through the complete Beethoven cycle, in concerts including his Op 59 no 2, alongside a masterpiece from Haydn and an exuberant world premiere from Matthew Hindson, inspired by the movement and energy of light.
The Elias String Quartet comprises two sisters, Sara and Marie Bitlloch on volin and cello, with Donald Grant on violin and Martin Saving on viola. Marie says, 'We're starting the Beethoven cycle a year before we come to Australia. By then we'll have played half of all Beethoven's quartets! It's going to be wonderful to play Op 59 no 2 in Australia, having been immersed in his music.'
Be part of the future of this beautiful tradition by joining us for this concert.
