- The Endellion String Quartet
Don’t miss the Endellion String Quartet in its 41st and final season. Beethoven’s Op 18/6 is full of high spirits, invention and affection and in the Finale we hear a pre-echo of the depth and spirituality of his late period. Bartók’s highly expressive and striking last quartet was one of the first pieces in the Endellion's repertoire. Mendelssohn’s E minor quartet veers between extreme turbulence and captivating lyricism and includes a delightful Scherzo in his unique Midsummer Night's Dream style.
