Elias String Quartet at Holy Trinity Church, Leamington (2 of 2)

Sara Bitlloch and Donald Grant violins
Simone van der Giessen viola, Marie Bitlloch cello

Scottish Folk Music settings
Beethoven   Quartet in E flat Op 127

 

The fifteenth Leamington Music Winter Season will be different, but there’s no better way of opening than having the Elias Quartet, fresh from the virtual Edinburgh Festival, here for the sixth time.

It is still the Beethoven 250 year and the Elias has performed the full cycle several times since launching their Beethoven Project in 2011. His vast output included some Scottish folk music, so Donald Grant’s settings can connect and be much enjoyed.

The fifteenth Leamington Music Winter Season will be different, but there’s no better way of opening than having the Elias Quartet, fresh from the virtual Edinburgh Festival, here for the sixth time.

It is still the Beethoven 250 year and the Elias has performed the full cycle several times since launching their Beethoven Project in 2011. The Elias also recently recorded the three quartets by Britten earning further rave reviews. His third quartet was his last completed work and follows on from his opera Death in Venice.
