This concert begins the Endellions’ series at Wigmore Hall in the 2018-19 season It celebrates their 40th season as a string quartet. Three of the players are founder members and Ralph de Souza joined them in 1986. 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.’ The Mendelssohn quartet is a joyous and celebratory piece to open the series. Britten’s quartet, nearly his final utterance, is darkly introspective and the Endellions have championed it throughout their career, recording it for EMI and then again for Warner. Beethoven’s tremendous second Razumovsky is another riveting mainstay of their repertoire.

The other concerts in the Endellions' Wigmore Hall 40th anniversary series are on Sunday, 20 January and Wednesday, 29 May.
