Elias Kwartet

Elias Kwartet

The Elias Quartet, consisting of former Conservatory students from Manchester, is named after Mendelssohn's oratorio Elias, composed for nearby Birmingham.

In Maastricht they play Beethoven on stage with the original finale Grosse Fuge, typified as the last outburst of desperate energy, or the ultimate battle with the counterpoint. Britten wrote his second quartet at the 250th anniversary of the death of Purcell, his lifelong source of inspiration. Mozart's KV 421 is sometimes called 'birth pain quartet': he composed it with the heavily pregnant, grieving Constanze in the room next to it.
