Guest Cambridge musicians, Emma and Joy Lisney, join the Endellion String Quartet for a performance of Brahms’s String Sextet Op.36

Endellion String Quartet (‘Quartet in Residence’, University of Cambridge)
Andrew Watkinson (violin)
Ralph de Souza (violin and viola)
Garfield Jackson (viola)
David Waterman (cello)
Emma Lisney (Guest second violin)
Joy Lisney (Guest second cello)

Dvořák’s E major quartet is full of freshness and invention and Beethoven’s early Op. 18 No.3 quartet is one of his most good-humoured, warm and youthful. The third piece in this concert will be the second of Brahms’s string sextets which is much-loved by string players and audiences alike. The extra bass and lower middle voices give the ensemble a warmth and colourful richness which is natural to Brahms who sounds completely at home in this medium. Joy and Emma Lisney are two eminent and highly talented sisters who are both studying or about to return to studying at Cambridge University despite already making their mark in the music profession.
