Endellion String Quartet in Cambridge, London and New York

Endellion String Quartet
The Endellion Quartet are having a busy year. This season is the quartet's 34th year, and their 20th year in Residence at Cambridge University. They will also be playing the complete Beethoven Quartets twice, in the space of 10 days, at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Recent performances have included the premiere of Thea Musgrave's Towards the Blue commissioned by the Wigmore Hall for clarinettist Michael Collins and London Winds to perform with the quartet. 

Their Cambridge season ends on May 8 with a concert at West Road Concert Hall performing Bartok's String Quartet No. 1 and Haydn, plus the Brahms Piano Quartet for which Andrew Watkinson, Garfield Jackson and David Waterman will be joined by the extraordinarily gifted Hok Kiu Johnson Leung (He started giving public concerts internationally at the age of eight. He is in his first year studying engineering at Downing College. He also holds an instrumental award scholarship). The quartet returns to the Wigmore Hall on 24 April, with a concert of Haydn, Britten (String Quartet No. 2) and Beethoven (String Quartet in F, Op. 18, No. 1 'Romeo and Juliet').
