Hello and a very warm welcome to our Beethoven Project website!
We are incredibly excited to have launched this website which will enable you to follow and be part of our journey through the complete Beethoven String Quartets. We look forward to regularly updating and building the content to share with you in the coming years.
We are the Elias String Quartet and we first met as wide-eyed first year students in 1998. We have been in the current combination of players since January 2004 and our home is London. It has long been our dream to perform the complete Beethoven String Quartets as a cycle and we feel that it is finally the right time to begin…
We will present the cycle in various formats in venues across the country over the next 4 years. We hope this gives us enough time and space to immerse ourselves in the music and present the programmes to as wide an audience as possible. It also enables us to develop this website both as a personal account of our experiences and as a broader educational resource.
You will find our concert dates here on the Beethoven Project website along with
- video footage
- a blog of our rehearsals, personal thoughts, findings and news
- interviews and articles from Quartet Masters and Academics
This is a start. We hope to develop the site as we go along and encourage as much interaction as possible… We’d love to hear from you!
Please join us in our discovery and celebration of these 17 masterpieces.
All best wishes,
Sara, Donald, Martin and Marie x
