Elias String Quartet

1 Feb 2014

Malin Broman viola

String Quartet in F major Op. 18 No. 1
String Quartet in C Op. 29
String Quartet in A minor Op. 132
The Elias Quartet is joined by the Swedish violist Malin Broman for the second concert in this year's Beethoven Project series, which continues the Quartet's exploration of the complete string quartets by Beethoven.

The concert starts at the beginning of Beethoven's quartet-writing career; the Op. 18 No. 1 was composed in 1800, although a year later he substantially revised it because he admitted that he had 'just learned how to write quartets properly'. This new confidence is evident in the Op. 29 String Quintet of 1801, which revealed Beethoven's new brilliance and mastery of the form. The programme closes with the Op. 132 quartet, the second of Beethoven's peerless late quartets, and the darkest.
