The Endellion String Quartet

Haydn, Smetana and Beethoven


  • The Endellion String Quartet

The much-loved Endellion Quartet is in its fortieth anniversary year and has played over a hundred times at Wigmore Hall. Its programme ends with Beethoven’s phenomenal Op. 130 in its original version culminating in the mighty Grosse Fuge, an explosion of energy and creativity in reaction to the heart-breaking sorrow of the Cavatina before it. Smetana’s ‘From my Life’ is overtly autobiographical and one of the greatest and most expressive Romantic quartets. Haydn’s masterly, warm and playful Op. 64 No. 6 opens the concert.
