Bringing a performance to you from Wigmore Hall as the finale to their six-part ground breaking Beethoven Project, internationally acclaimed as one of the leading ensembles of their generation, the Elias String Quartet have an intense and vibrant technique. They carry, enthusiastically, the joyful Allegro con brio in String Quartet in B flat major Op. 18 No. 6, contrasting well with the second variation of String Quartet in F major Op. 135 Lento assai, cantante e tranquillo which slips into a confident dark C sharp minor creating a varied nature to their programme. This fantastic and committed performance by the Elias String Quartet brings a new and exciting energy to the masterworks of Beethoven.
