Elias String Quartet

In Beethoven's Footsteps


  • Elias String Quartet
  • Sara Bitlloch violin
  • Donald Grant violin
  • Robin Ireland viola
  • Marie Bitlloch cello

Webern’s intensely romantic Langsamer Satz was inspired by a hiking holiday taken by the composer and his fiancée in the foothills of the Austrian Alps. Shot through with resonances of Beethoven, this programme is completed with Bartók’s Fourth String Quartet and Brahms’s Op. 51 No. 2, two works distinguished by their thematic unity and allusions to folk music.

  • Anton Webern (1883-1945)
        • Langsamer Satz
  • Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
        • String Quartet No. 4 BB95
  • Interval
  • Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
        • String Quartet in A minor Op. 51 No. 2
