Additional notes

Change of Running Order
The running order for this concert has changed and will now be as listed below:


  • Elias String Quartet

Robert Schumann’s highly personal art again provides the theme, with the Elias musicians focusing on his string quartets. At different periods, the composer concentrated on different genres: 1842 was the year he threw himself at chamber music, producing within twelve months all three of his string quartets and several other individual masterpieces.
