This event has passed.

PLEASE NOTE (from the Elias members): Elias Quartet violist Martin Saving is in treatment for a medical condition which, because it involves his arm, will prevent him from participating in the quartet’s upcoming North American tour in February-March, 2018. Simone van der Giessen will fill in for Martin.

Says the quartet: “We’ve known Simone for a long time, since we were students. We overlapped by a year at the Northern College in Manchester and had the same chamber music mentor there. Her quartet, the Navarra Quartet, are some of our favorite musicians as well as close friends of ours. We love playing with them and often play quintets, sextets, and octets together. It is always so easy and natural, like an extended quartet! So Simone joining us while Martin recovers feels very natural, we’ve been having a wonderful time playing with her and we’re so happy that she is able to join us on this tour.“
