Endellion String Quartet

performs Haydn, Schumann and Beethoven

Wednesday 12th February 2014

7:30 pm

Richard offered a kingdom for a horse and, in a similarly desperate plight, the fastidious and unshaven Haydn is said to have offered a quartet for a razor: an equally princely gift! Schumann's quartet is one of the great Romantic pieces in the repertoire with a sublime slow movement at its heart. Beethoven's Second Quartet, dedicated to Prince Razumovsky, also has a very great slow movement whose serenity contrasts with the nervous energy which suffuses much of the rest of the piece.
