This prizewinning quartet has performed in Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver and at the Carnegie Hall, as well as at the Wigmore Hall in London. They have been BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists. Their varied programme features Mozart’s Quartet in B flat “The Hunt” and their acclaimed performance of Schumann’s “Quartet in A op 41 no 3”. The concert begins with excerpts from Bach’s “The Art of Fugue” and includes Donald Grant's touching arrangement of Scottish folk music.
“I could go on enumerating the myriad glories of these performances, but you get the idea… the Elias’s has instantly become my favourite, and I can’t recommend it urgently enough” Gramophone Magazine (reviewing the Elias String Quartet’s recording of the Schumann Quartet).
