Elias String Quartet With Robin Ireland | Audience Choice


Simply astounding, in the freshness, intensity, assurance, and seeming spontaneity of their playing.

BBC Music Magazine

Robin Ireland joins the Elias String Quartet to perform some of the greatest string quintets ever written.

Discover Mozart’s expansive lyricism and dazzling counterpoint contrasted with Beamish’s reflective Epilogue. The Elias String Quartet are known for their ability to communicate musical meaning. Associate Artists at Turner Sims from 2012-2015, they have gained an international following with regular tours across Europe and the US. The quartet are keen advocates of contemporary music and have commissioned many works by composers including Sally Beamish.

Violist Robin Ireland was a member of the celebrated Lindsay String Quartet for 20 years. He is now a sought-after soloist, chamber musician, composer, and teacher.

*In celebration of our big birthday, we asked you to share your favourite Turner Sims concerts. The Elias String Quartet stood out with their complete cycles of Beethoven and Schumann quartets. We’re excited to welcome them back as an Audience Choice highlight in our 50th year.
