Lose yourself in this programme of iconic and beautiful string quartets from the Elias Quartet, acclaimed as one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation.

"Cellist Marie Bitlloch’s pizzicato and violinist Sara Bitlloch’s melody bent in time with what can only be described as a clairvoyant understanding. This is real quartet playing … Voices ducked in and out and technique calmed challenge, but the Elias remained, in every way, a single stunning organism."
