Fanny Mendelssohn String Quartet in E flat
Schubert Quartettsatz in C minor, D. 703
Elgar Piano Quintet (with Jonathan Biss)
Liverpool Philharmonic

The Royal Northern College of Music’s ensemble in residence, the Elias String Quartet, perform works by Fanny Mendelssohn and Schubert, before uniting with acclaimed pianist Jonathan Biss to perform Elgar’s daring Piano Quintet. The Elgar Quintet, composed in the peaceful surroundings of a Sussex summer, was dedicated to the music critic of the Manchester Guardian. Fanny Mendelssohn's Quartet is based on an unfinished piano sonata she wrote five years before. This extraordinary, rhapsodic work is her only mature string quartet, and one of the first surviving string quartets written by a woman. One of Schubert’s most famous chamber works completes this Sunday afternoon concert.

Please note, Pēteris Vasks’ String Quartet No. 3 will not be performed as previously advertised.
