Endellion String Quartet

2016-17 season: Mozart, Tippett, Beethoven

Wednesday 19th October 2016

7:30 pm

Mozart’s ‘Hunt’ quartet gets its name from the opening tune, but it also contains a glorious slow movement and brilliantly operatic finale. In his second quartet Tippett looked back to the first glorious age of English music with a strongly contrapuntal work which includes a heart-wrenching Passacaglia worthy of Purcell. For many (including the composer himself) Beethoven’s Op.131 is his greatest quartet – certainly the one in the most awkward key!

Mozart String Quartet K.458 in B flat (‘The Hunt’)
Tippett String Quartet No.2
Beethoven String Quartet Op.131 in C sharp minor
