The Elias String Quartet to premiere a new Hindson work this August

Britain’s leading young chamber ensemble, the Elias String Quartet will join forces with composer Matthew Hindson this August. Commencing their national tour on Friday 16th August for Musica Viva’s International Concert Season, the Quartet will premiere Hindson’s latest String Quartet no 2 (commissioned by Julian Burnside AO, QC), and add Beethoven’s famous “Razumovsky Quartet” as the next installment in their commitment to play his complete cycle of quartets in live performance.

Here, Matthew Hindson reflects on the task of writing for the Elias String Quartet.
