  4. String Quartet No 3 in E flat minor Op 30 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Beethoven’s charming and most Mozartian early quartet is followed by Mozart’s intensely introspective and profound D minor quartet which opens with one of the most memorable of his melodies. Webern’s astonishingly expressive Bagatelles take all of three and a half minutes but Schoenberg described Webern as being able to ‘express a novel in a single gesture, joy in a single indrawn breath …’ In contrast to this extreme concision is the luxurious expansiveness of Tchaikovsky’s superb third and final quartet which is as masterly and moving as any of his symphonies.

‘There’s always a feeling when listening to the Endellion Quartet that you’re listening to the Urtext method of quartet playing’ – Gramophone Magazine
