HAYDN String Quartet Op.54 No.2 in C

MOZART String Quartet K.575 in D

SCHUBERTString Quintet in C (D.956, Op. posth. 163) (‘Cello Quintet’)

The last concert in our Cambridge 2016-17 series starts with Haydn’s extraordinary Op.54 No.2, with its amazing written out improvisation in the Adagio, the agonising cries of anguish in the Trio and the slow (mostly!) finale. We follow that with Mozart’s radiantly tender late D major quartet and finish the season on a high note with the miraculous Schubert quintet for two cellos, in which we shall be joined by our dear friend Guy Johnston. 

Guy is a former King’s College Chorister, winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year (2000) and one of the most exciting young British cellists of his generation.

The Endellion String Quartet is most grateful to Lark (Group) Limited 

for their sponsorship of this concert.

‘Sets the audience ablaze’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Captivates concertgoers with a remarkable rapport, playing to each other with a sense almost of discovery, communicating to the audience on a level of unusual intimacy’ – Guardian

‘There’s always a feeling when listening to the Endellion Quartet that you’re listening to the Urtext method of quartet playing. Maybe 35 years of playing together has brought a uniformity of thought and instinct to them as a group that allows them to play as a single entity’ – Gramophone Magazine

‘Guy Johnston gave a lucid performance that was coloured equally with passion and intensity’
