Audiences around Britain and beyond became devoted followers of the Elias String Quartet’s Beethoven Project, in which the complete quartets were performed over the course of two seasons. This disc offers the chance to hear the fruits of the ensemble’s collective experience and deep thinking on the works. We are proud to release the second volume of this collection on the Wigmore Hall Live label which presents three masterpieces: the String Quartet in F, op.18 no.1, the String Quartet in A minor, op.132, and the String Quintet in C, op.29. For the latter the Elias String Quartet is joined by Malin Broman who is in huge demand as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. In this rousing concert, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall, the ensemble explores these works with sustained intensity and meticulous attention to detail.

Recorded live at Wigmore Hall, London, on 19 May 2014
