Elias Quartet

After a three-year project exploring all of Beethoven’s string quartets, the Elias Quartet decided to consider how composers after Beethoven lived up to his monumental legacy. Some of them approached their string quartets by expanding his musical language; others took a more poetic and imaginative turn of phrase. This particular program focuses on the freshness and fluidity of the music of Schubert and Dvorák, both of whom had a particular gift for writing melodies that seemed to spring from an endless well of inspiration.

Artemis Quartet

Named after the Greek goddess of hunt and wilderness, the Artemis Quartet was founded in 1989 but took a full 10 years before it performed its first concerts for a live audience. This dedication to excellence has not wavered, and their playing is known for its “apparently effortless grace and effervescent athleticism.” (BBC) Based in Berlin, it programs its own series at the Berlin Philharmonie and the Vienna Konzerthaus, as well as in Munich and Amsterdam.
