Elias String Quartet

Weill Recital Hall
The Sunday Times (London) said the members of the Elias String Quartet “make a beautiful sound, burnished yet translucent, and play with vigor and subtlety.” Beethoven’s “Serioso” Quartet, written while the composer was besieged by personal problems, finds joy in its finale. The String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135, has episodes of Haydn-like humor, a gorgeous set of variations, and closes with an enigmatic musical discussion. The String Quartet in C-sharp Minor opens with a complex fugue, and then journeys through a world of changing moods in seven continuous movements.
