Endellion String Quartet
2-4-1 tickets for Endellion String Quartet Concerts in Cambridge
The Endellion String Quartet is renowned as one of the finest quartets in the world and the University is proud to have them as our Quartet in Residence. They were founded in January 1979 and three of the original players, Andrew Watkinson (Violin), Garfield Jackson (Viola), David Waterman (Cello), continue to be members. Ralph de Souza (Violin) joined them thirty-one years ago. In 2013, Gramophone stated '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 to them as a group uniformity of thought and instinct that allows them to play as a single entity.'

To celebrate the last in their current season of concerts at West Road Concert Hall (11 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DP) - and to thank their loyal audiences there - the Endellions invite 16 May's concert audience to join them for a free glass of wine (or soft drink) after the concert. The concert details are as follow:
Wednesday, 16 May 2018 at 7.30 pm
HAYDN – String Quartet Op.76 No.4 (‘Sunrise’)
BARBER – String Quartet Op.11
BRAHMS – String Quartet No.1 Op.51 No.1
Barber’s expressive quartet includes the Adagio, one of the 20th century’s most loved pieces. Here in its original quartet form it has the intimacy and the extreme stretching of sonority that was part of its force in its original conception. Haydn’s ‘Sunrise’ is as sun-blessed as its nickname suggests. Brahms’s intense C minor masterpiece is the first quartet he allowed to be published after destroying dozens with which he was dissatisfied.
