This world-class string group returns to Cambridge for a performance at West Road Concert Hall on 20 April. With Andrew Watkinson and Ralph de Souza on violins, Garfield Jackson on viola and David Waterman on the Cello, the Endellion is now in its 37th season. This performance will be their third of four currently scheduled at West Road, with the next being on 18 May.
The quartet will be playing music by Haydn, Mozart and Tchaikovsky; specifically, the intense and dramatic Quartet in D Minor Op.76, No.2 (known as ‘Fifths’) by Haydn, and then Mozart’s Quartet No.18 in A K.464 (‘Drum’) believed to have been an inspiration for one of Beethoven’s works that the Endellions played earlier this year. Finally, they will conclude with Tchaikovsky’s hugely rich and dark Quartet No.2 in F Op.22.
The Endellion String Quartet’s performance starts at 7.30pm, and tickets are available from Cambridge Live Trust.
