Final Concert

Haydn, Bartók and Beethoven have formed the backbone of the Endellion’s repertoire since its formation in 1979. Haydn’s Op 76 No 1 (nb change of programme) is among his greatest quartets and has long been an Endellion favourite, not least for the unsurpassed depth of feeling of its slow movement. Bartók’s Third Quartet is his most densely compact and intense, hugely creative and communicative. Op 127 is the first of Beethoven’s great late quartets. This one is supremely and warmly lyrical, and it exemplifies the extraordinary freedom of Beethoven’s unmatched imagination and the profundity of his feelings.

‘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
