“Their performance was beautifully synchronized into one glorious interpretation of Beethoven’s String Quartet No 15…The lyrical third movement was played so majestically that it moved this critic to tears, the human longing of Beethoven’s prayer being played with such sensitivity and vulnerability.”

The Herald, Scotland

 

“There’s something intoxicating about the Elias String Quartet…Intensely absorbing, exquisitely considered…stunning.”
