Elias String Quartet

March 8, 2018 | 1.30 pm

Sara Bitlloch, Donald Grant, violins; Martin Saving, viola; Marie Bitlloch, cello

2015 saw the quartet complete their multi-year Beethoven Project: performing and recording the complete string quartets of Beethoven. Broadcast by the BBC and performed in 11 major venues in the UK, the Quartet also recorded the cycle for the ‘Wigmore Hall Live’ record label.  Based now in the buzz of London, they are exploring “life after Beethoven”, the different ways in which later composers met the challenge of his monumental legacy.
