Beethoven Quartet Op. 133



NEWS

23 November 2015


The Elias Quartet’s recent tour this side of the pond has left a new wave of admirers in its wake, including music critics in Boston and Philadelphia:

 

“Overall, the foursome disclosed its own brand of artfully hesitating lyrical impulse...possessing freshness and wonder.  This was the rare ensemble that sounded in person even better than on its excellent recordings….These players never oversold or pushed, rather they let Beethoven’s meditations come to us directly.  Note to my executors:  this is what I want for my funeral.”

Boston Music Intelligencer

 

 

“If talking about love in the realm of string quartet seems arbitrary, consider the full achievement of the Elias’ [concert].  In Schumann, Haydn, and Beethoven, devotion to a collective sound and soul of a piece was scrupulously observed, but as an act of striking modesty…. A variety of musical temperaments emerged in startling detail.”
—Philadelphia Inquirer

 

The Elias Quartet returns to North America in February, 2017, and again in February-March, 2018.
