Endellion String Quartet

Fortieth Anniversary Season

Wednesday 30th January 2019

7:30 pm

Like Beethoven, Tchaikovsky was a great symphonist and an equally great quartet writer. The small forces of the string quartet never seem to hamper Tchaikovsky’s capacity for sumptuous harmonies and textures. The slow movement of this piece has become justly famous and is transcribed for orchestra and other instrumental combinations. Haydn’s profound and searching Op.20 No.5 ends in a fugue as does Beethoven’s famous C major quartet … and what different fugues they are!

‘Sets the audience ablaze’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Captivates concertgoers with a remarkable rapport, playing to each other with a sense almost of discovery, communicating to the audience on a level of unusual intimacy’ - Guardian
