“The Elias always strike me with their diligence, candour and unguarded, searching commitment, but this performance adds new daring and flair,” The Guardian wrote of the group’s Beethoven: The Complete String Quartets, Vol. 3. The quartet was formed more than two decades ago at the Royal Northern College of Music, where they are now an ensemble-in-residence. See them at the New Mexico Museum of Art’s St. Francis Auditorium at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 31. Repertoire includes Quartet in A Minor, D. 804, Rosamunde from Schubert, and Schumann’s Quartet in A Minor, Op. 41, No. 1. Tickets ($12-$80) are available at 505-988-1234, ticketssantafe.com.
