The Endellion String Quartet is in its 41st and final season - and has played over 100 times at Wigmore Hall. The programme ends wtih Beethoven's phenomenal Op 130 in its original version culminating with the mighty Grosse Fuge, an explosion of energy and creativity in reaction to the heart-breaking sorrow of the Cavatina before it. Smetana's 'From my life' is overtly autobiographical and one of the greatest and most expressive Romantic quartets. Haydn's masterly, warm and playful Op 64 No 6 opens the concert.

‘There’s always a feeling when listening to the Endellion Quartet that you’re listening to the Urtext method of quartet playing. Maybe 35 years of playing together has brought a uniformity of thought and instinct to them as a group that allows them to play as a single entity’ — Gramophone Magazine

‘The Endellion is a quartet of the first rank: precision, clarity of articulation, and beauty of sound characterize both the individual playing and the stimulating interplay of the four team-mates.’ — La Presse, Montreal

‘ … The Endellion’s warm sound and impeccable style … they function as an indivisible expressive unit, playing with that innate understanding of each other that only comes from a long experience of making music together … superb … real eloquence and passion … outstandingly done’ – Guardian, May 2019
