'Eliot Quartett' at Wentworth Villa

Our first concert of the season!

The Eliot Quartett was founded in 2014 and has become one of the most engaging and promising string quartets of the next generation. Hailing from Canada, Germany, and Russia, the quartet’s members formed the group in Frankfurt am Main and have since gone on to win prizes at major national and international music competitions, including second prize at both the Mozart International Competition in Salzburg and the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, the Prize of the German Music Competition as well as three additional special prizes, and first prize and the special prize for the best interpretation of a piece by Karol Szymanowski at the inaugural International Karol Szymanowski Competition in Katowice, Poland.
