The Elias Quartet have quickly established themselves as one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation. The quartet was formed in 1998 at the Royal Northern College of Music, and the players also spent a year studying at the Hochschule in Cologne with the Alban Berg Quartet.

The quartet was chosen to participate in BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists’ scheme, and was also a recipient of the 2010 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award. They have given performances in some of the world’s most prestigious chamber-music venues.

‘Marvellous playing…poetic, charismatic, virtuosic.’ (Sunday Telegraph)
