Generously supported by The Exeter & District Classical Music Trust

Former New Generation Artists, the Elias Quartet has achieved a national and international reputation as one of the foremost quartets to emerge on the concert scene in recent years. Their cleverly devised programme includes Australian composer Matthew Hindson’s second string quartet, written in 2013.

The opening quartet, Op 33 No 5 by Haydn, has the curious nickname “How do you do?” The first movement begins pianissimo with a Galant Cadence, the musical equivalent of a bow or curtsey, the rhythm of which prompted this nineteenth-century English nickname.

Schubert’s Rosamunde Quartet was composed in 1824, taking as its theme the sad opening of one of his most famous songs, Gretchen am Spinnrade.
