The Elias String Quartet, consisting of French, Scottish and Swedish members, is resident at the Universities of Sheffield and York in northern England. This intense and brilliant young quartet spent a year studying with the Alban Berg Quartet in Cologne and has received many honours at major international competitions, including multiple awards at the 2003 London International String Quartet Competition.

For its inaugural visit to Australia, the Quartet presents a quintessential selection of quartet repertoire ranging from the Baroque elegance of Purcell’s Fantasias through to Carl Vine’s String Quartet no 4.

Elias String Quartet: Sara Bitlloch (violin), Donald Grant (violin), Martin Saving (viola), Marie Bitlloch (cello).
