Elias String Quartet; Sarah Rothenberg, Piano

800 Bagby Street, Suite 300

The intense, vibrant Elias Quartet returns to the DACAMERA stage for one night only following their historic Beethoven string quartet cycle in 2022 – and this time they’re joined by a friend. Artistic Director Sarah Rothenberg joins the quartet for Brahms’ majestic Piano Quintet, in which the composer’s own beloved instrument takes center stage. We kick off our celebration of composer Fanny Mendelssohn with her rhapsodic Quartet in E-flat Major, one of the first surviving string quartets by a woman. Stravinsky’s rarely-performed miniatures, Three Pieces for String Quartet, open the program.Stravinsky: Three Pieces for String QuartetFanny Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E-flat MajorBrahms: Piano Quintet in F Minor, Op. 34Elias String Quartet (Sara Bitlloch, violin; Donald Grant, violin; Simone van der Giessen, viola; Marie Bitlloch, cello); Sarah Rothenberg, piano
