Elias String Quartet/The Beethoven Project – Grand Fugue webstream


On its dedicated website the Elias String Quartet continues to share its intrepid journey of discovery of the Beethoven quartets as it reaches one of the most challenging milestones, the Grosse Fuge. Following on from Sara Bitlloch’s much admired insight film about the work, a complete Wigmore Hall performance is available from today as a webstream for a limited 10 day period only.


The Quartet begins UK performances of the complete Beethoven Quartets cycle in the forthcoming season and, in the meantime, has recently captured the hearts of American audiences (and sold out at Carnegie Hall) on it’s US debut tour: “Few quartets at any stage of their evolution have this much personality - as manifested by an unusually warm blend [and] emotional individuality” (Philadelphia Inquirer)
