‘Playing of wonderful exuberance and fire’ Guardian

Sally Beamish was inspired to write Reed Stanzas by Elias Quartet’s Donald Grant, who doubles as a Scottish fiddle player. This, her third quartet, evokes windswept landscapes of Suffolk and Harris, threaded with the calls of a lapwing.

It stands between two of Beethoven’s most ebullient essays in the form: the vivacious Op. 18 No. 1 in F, and one of the mighty Razumovsky quartets, with its daring opening and vertiginously brilliant finale.

Sally Beamish speaks to Kate Molleson for Venus Unwrapped below.

Listen to the world premiere of Reed Stanzas performed by the Elias Quartet at the BBC Proms in 2011.
