“Few quartets at any stage of their evolution have this much personality,” claimed the Washington Post of the Elias String Quartet. Formed in 1998 at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, the Quartet took its name from Mendelssohn’s oratorio, Elijah (Elias in German), and quickly established itself as one of the leading lights of the younger generation of string quartets. In 2009, it was a recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award. With the support of the Trust, the Elias String Quartet mounted The Beethoven Project, studying and performing all of Beethoven’s string quartets as cycles while sharing their experience through social media and a website ( The project culminated with a cycle at Wigmore Hall, where all six concerts were recorded live for the hall’s own label. The final volume of the Elias String Quartet’s complete Beethoven cycle was recently released. The ensemble’s discography also includes quartets by Mendelssohn and Schumann, as well as piano quintets by Schumann and Dvořák with Jonathan Biss.
