ENDELLION STRING QUARTET - 20th Season as ‘Quartet in Residence’, University of Cambridge.

‘The Endellion is arguably the finest quartet in Britain’ - The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians

Wednesday, 25th April 2012
Mozart String Quartet No.14 in G K.387 (‘Spring’)
Britten String Quartet No.3 Op.94
Mendelssohn String Quartet No.5 in E flat Op.44 No.3

In this concert, the first and perhaps most elusive of Mozart’s mature quartets will precede Britten’s haunting Third Quartet, one of the last pieces he wrote. These will be followed by another electrifying dose of Mendelssohn.


Tel: 01223-503333


The Endellion's last concert in the 2011-12 season at West Road Concert Hall will be on 9th May 2012:
Beethoven String Quartet in B flat Op.18 No.6
Mendelssohn String Quartet No.6 in F minor Op.80
TBC Quintet with Cambridge University Student

Back to Beethoven with the most revolutionary of his early quartets, to be followed by Mendelssohn’s stormy and tragic last quartet, written in the state of anguish and devastation caused by his sister Fanny’s death. Finally, we shall have a mystery item for which we shall be joined by a Cambridge student.
