Elias String Quartet: Brahms, Respighi & Mendelssohn
Monday 27 February 2023, 7.30pm
RNCM Concert Hall
The Elias String Quartet are one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation.
Formed at the RNCM in 1998, they have had a strong association with the College, and we’re delighted to welcome them back as Artists-in-Residence. Through workshops, teaching and performance, the Quartet will work closely with our students during our anniversary year, giving them invaluable insight into one of the UK’s leading chamber ensembles.
In the second event of their residency, Elias perform side-by-side with students from the School of Strings in an evening of Brahms, Respighi & Mendelssohn.
