After a three-year project exploring all of Beethoven’s string quartets, the Elias Quartet decided to consider how composers after Beethoven lived up to his monumental legacy.

Some of them approached their string quartets by expanding his musical language; others took a more poetic and imaginative turn of phrase. This particular program focuses on the freshness and fluidity of the music of Schubert and Dvořák, both of whom had a particular gift for writing melodies that seemed to spring from an endless well of inspiration. “Magic moments abound…This remarkable ensemble’s ability to live and breathe each phrase with an enraptured sensitivity proves revelatory.” (The Strad)

Schubert Quartettsatz in c minor, D. 703
Dvořák Quartet No. 14 in A-flat Major, Op. 105
