Da Camera presents Elias String Quartet
The Elias String Quartet is one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation, and a favorite of Da Camera audiences. Composer Sally Beamish recently received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours, for her services to music. This performance features the U.S. premiere of Beamish’s Quartet No. 4, her response to Schumann’s A Minor Quartet. As an encore, Elias will present rousing arrangements of Scottish folk tunes.
