"Thème russe" by the Eliot Quartett nominated for the German Record Critics' Award

1.10.2021: The Eliot Quartett has been nominated for the German Record Critics' Prize for its CD Thème russe, released in September.

The Eliot Quartett has already been showered with prizes, including awards at the German Music Competition, the Mozart Competition in Salzburg, and the Melbourne Competition.

The nominated CD "Thème russe"

Its new GENUIN CD presents two milestones of the string quartet repertoire: Ludwig van Beethoven's Razumovsky Quartet, Op. 59 no. 1, and Sergei Prokofiev's thrilling Second Quartet. Both works deal with East European folklore, and the four musicians bring out their melodic colors and rhythmic peculiarities with great accuracy and homogeneity of sound.
